Church Office

Office hours are generally Monday, Tuesday and Friday, 9:00 AM-3:00 PM. You can also meet and reach out to our staff by following this link. It’s always a good idea to call ahead, if you plan to stop by the church: 518-463-7135.


Most of our important congregational documents are stored in the online church “file cabinet.”  If you are looking for a document, it probably lives there.  You can browse through it by following this link.

It takes a lot of people to operate and govern a congregation our size.  The vision, mission, congregational covenant and strategic planning are their responsibility with congregational support.  To learn more about our governance have a look at the documents in the file cabinet.
