Visitor Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Arlington Congregational Church unique?
Arlington Congregational Church extends an open and affirming welcome to you no matter where you are on your journey of life or who you understand yourself to be. We don’t just say that we live that - we are a diverse congregation from many areas of the community.
We are also committed to serving the mission needs of our community and world - we work with over 20 different missions that increase the mercy and justice of God for all people.
How do I get to Arlington Congregational Church?
We are located on University Blvd., just south of the Arlington Expressway in the big curve between where Cesery splits from University headed north and before the Arlington Expressway.
Where do I park?
Our parking lot is located on the north side of the building. Turn in on Floral Avenue and park – “Visitors” spaces are located on the street row.
May I meet Pastor Bruce Havens?
Absolutely! Dr. Havens greets people at the door at the end of the service each Sunday and is available to visit during the coffee hour. Other times, you can reach him at the office or at home.
What about my children?
Arlington Congregational Church loves children! We welcome them during worship including a “children’s time” during the services. Children may then go out to Sunday School for the rest of the worship hour and parents may pick them up afterward.
There are monthly fun and fellowship activities outside Sunday morning. We have a staffed nursery at all services and we are committed to being a “Safe” church with screened workers at all events. In addition, Twila Rhodes, our Director of Christian Education and Youth is committed to developing experiences that bring joy, learning, and spiritual growth to all the children.
What can I expect as a visitor?
A warm, personal welcome, an inspiring and uplifting worship experience and a congregation that will try to help you feel welcome!
Our 10:30 a.m. worship is traditional but we strive for an informality that allows everyone to feel comfortable. A full choir leads the music and Holy Communion, which is open to all, is offered the first Sunday of the month.
Our 9:00 a.m. service is even more informal and we use music that is more “praise” style led by a small group of vocalists and instrumentalists. Holy Communion is offered every Sunday at this service and is, again, open to all.

After worship we have a time for coffee and visiting with one another in our Fellowship Hall.
What should I wear when attending service?
Many people dress informally while some men will wear a coat and tie and some women wear dresses. We believe what’s on the body is not as important as what is in the heart. Come with a heart for worshiping God and you will be welcomed!
