Community Reformed Church
701 Sand Creek Road Colonie New York
Outdoor and Zoom Worship 10AM
Reverend Bruce K. Cornwell, Pastor
The Community Reformed Church of Colonie welcomes you. We are a community bound together and energized by faith, love, and commitment to Jesus Christ. And even though you may not yet share that faith, love, and commitment, you are most welcome to be with us, to belong here, to experience what we're about. Then, if you are attracted and persuaded by what you see and hear, we hope you'll want to set down roots here long-term. And even if you don't, you'll always be a friend.
Through scripture readings and song, the story of Christ's betrayal, trial, and crucifixion is told. As the Passion story unfolds, candles are removed symbolizing the fleeing of the disciples. The darkness deepens, until only the Christ Candle remains. This light is removed from the sanctuary representing Christ's crucifixion and death. The Light of our Church returns in glory Easter morning.
This service will also be livestreamed on Zoom. All services are recorded for later viewing on Facebook and YouTube.
Due to the somber intensity of this service, child care is provided for children 2nd grade and younger.
Programs are slowly restarting in a variety of ways. Please contact the church for information regarding your specific area of interest.

Al-Anon is for anyone who has been affected by alcoholism. If you are concerned about someone else's drinking, the Al-Anon program can offer help. Al-Anon began over 50 years ago as "family groups," attended by the families of alcoholics who found sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous. Today, Al-Anon/Alateen members are finding serenity and help in our program, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Recovery in Al-Anon is based on the Twelve Steps (adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous).
Throughout the year, we work with numerous agencies and organizations throughout the Capital District and beyond. The Schulyer Inn Shelter, Colonie Outreach Center, Albany Overflow Shelter, Things of My Very Own, and Reformed Church World Service are just a few organizations that we support.
When our worship is over, our service begins.
