Thank you for visiting our website!
Welcome from the staff and congregation of the Acton Community Presbyterian Church! We are delighted that you have visited and hope that you will find information, interesting features, encouragement, and resources during your visit. For 126 years--since 1888-- Acton Church has been the "hometown" church for Acton, California, and we would love being your church as well. We would be honored if you chose to visit and worship with us. The Season of Lent is a time of reflection that hopefully will prepare all believers for the Savior's final journey toward Calvary. It is a penitential season of knowing that Christ has come in love to us in spite of our sinfulness and our neediness. Now is a great time to establish a connection with the hometown church and to make time for your spiritual well-being. It's one of the "coolest" places in town!! We are genuinely committed to being a "Community Church" and not just a "church in a community."
If you have never visited and are considering doing so, or if you are considering relocating to our area, we would love to have you be our guest for worship and participation in any of our activities.
When you visit Acton Church, you will find:
Rev. Dr. Robert T. Cassell, Interim Pastor
1888-2015-- Celebrating Heritage and Hope
"One by one He took them from me,
All the things I valued most.
Until I was empty-handed;
Every glittering toy was lost.
Then I walked earth's highway grieving,
In my rags and poverty;
'Til I heard His voice inviting:
Lift your empty hands to me.
So I held my hands toward Heaven,
And He filled them with a store
Of His own transcendent riches,
'Til they could contain no more.
Then at last I comprehended
With my stupid mind and dull,
That God could not pour out His riches
Into hands already full."
-- Martha Snell Nicholson
Prayer for Fourth Week of Lent
Gracious heavenly Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and forever. Amen.
An evening of retelling the amazing story in the liberation of God's people,
followed with a wonderful dinner and dessert.

With a spirit of enthusiasm and excitement, the Acton Church Members and Friends welcome the leadership of the
Rev. Dr. Robert T. Cassell for the first months of 2013. Dr. Cassell is well known to the congregation having served as pulpit supply on a number of occasions before the retirement of Rev. Judith. He and his wife Judith are a welcome presence and have brought kindness, a listening ear, a sense of deep love for the congregation, and a continuous desire to provide the leadership that will aide the congregation through this transition toward the call of a permanent pastor in the future. Many may not be aware that Dr. Cassell has won a number of awards for his expertise as an interim pastor, has provided expert training to other pastors entering the field of interim pastoring, and has brought many years of first-hand experience to his present task.
