Welcome to Arbor Road!

If you have any questions about our ministry, please reach out to one of our pastors or fill out our Welcome form and we’ll reach out to you!

Upcoming Events

Take a look at what’s coming up soon at Arbor Road. We know that gathering as a church body is important as we support one another to grow our relationship with Jesus in community.

Plan Your Visit

Take a look below as you plan to visit on a Sunday or throughout the week.

We are a church in Long Beach, California, founded in 1947. Because of our legacy in this community, our church body is multi-generational. You’ll find a place for babies all the way up to senior adults, and we love the wealth of community that brings to our buildings.

Learn more about our history and beliefs.

Where to park

We have two lots on our campus. You’ll hear them referred to as the “East Lot” and the “West Lot.” You’re welcome to park in either space on Sunday Mornings.

If you find that both of our lots are full, there are parking spaces near the Pan Am Park just down the street or along the residential streets surrounding our campus.

Bike patrol regularly keeps an eye on cars on our surrounding streets during services.

Worship

Because of the nature of our multi-generational congregation, we like to sing a range of traditional, contemporary, and modern songs on Sunday mornings. Check out our YouTube Worship Playlist to listen before you visit.

How should I dress?

Come as you are. When you attend Arbor Road, you’ll see there’s a wide range of attire. Some love to dress up, others come dressed casual.
