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
"Lord I did not freely choose you till by grace you set me free;
For my heart would still refuse you had your love not chosen me.
Now my heart sets none above you, for your grace alone I thirst,
Knowing well, that if I love you, you O Lord, have loved me first."
Prayer for First Week of Lent
Almighty and everlasting God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by the Evil One: Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptation; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and forever. 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.
