Alzheimer's presesentation 2024.jpg

“Memory, Forgetfulness and Aging: What’s normal and what’s not?” was presented by the Alzheimer’s Association and was open to anyone in the community.  It was a very informative presentation with opportunities to ask questions.  Light refreshments were served as well by the Outreach Committee.  Watch for future presentations brought to you by Arcade UCC's Outreach Committee!

Josh Bower


Greetings! My name is Josh Bower and I have served as the Pastor of Arcade United Church of Christ since 2020. In that short period of time – much of which was impacted by a global pandemic – it has been incredible to see the amazing work that God has been doing in our midst and within our greater Pioneer community. It is a joy to be able to grow and serve with the great people of Arcade UCC. My wife Nicole and I live in a home we built from the ground up in my hometown of Ellicottville, which is a good middle ground between Arcade and Little Valley, where Nicole works as a Registered Nurse for Hospice. We have two dogs named George and Ginny. 


I am currently completing my Master of Divinity degree through Chicago Theological Seminary and completed my undergraduate work at the University of Pittsburgh – Bradford. In my free time I enjoy cooking, barbequing meat, hiking, skiing, and gardening. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about our faith community!
