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 121 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. During this season of Lent we are challenged to look within ourselves and give our souls and spirits to the Lord so that we can be renewed and refreshed in the expectation of Resurrection. 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
1888-2013 -- Celebrating Heritage and Hope
Beneath the Cross of Jesus I fane would take my stand,
The shadow of a mighty Rock within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness, a rest along the way,
The burning of the noontide heat and the burden of the way.
I take, O Cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of Thy face;
Content to let the world go by, to know no gain or loss;
My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the Cross.
Prayer for Holy Week -- the Passion of our Lord
Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for all people you sent your
Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share in his resurrection; we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
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.
