No, not for a short trip like that. If in future you plan to take long trips, you'd have to apply for one, but chances of getting one are lower now after your extended time abroad. Do you intend to stay mostly in the US until you apply for citizenship? Then you should be fine.
ARC just means Alien Registration Card (GC), which they routinely stamp on LPR passports.
