Resources

Church Office

Please stop by our administrative offices and greet our friendly staff!  This is the center of the congregation where you’ll most likely find the resource you need.  You can meet our staff by following this link.

Regular office hours are: 9-3pm Monday – Friday
Summer office hours are: 9-1pm Monday – Thursday

The staff may be here before and after those hours so contact the office at: 518-463-7135 or office@albanyuu.org.

 

Documents

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

Leaders

It takes a lot of people to operate and govern a congregation our size.  The mission 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.

Building Use

An important commitment of this congregation is sharing our space with the community.  We strongly encourage its use to support organizations and initiatives in alignment with our values.  We also make our facility available for weddings and memorial services.  Find out more by following this link

Archives

Sometimes members and friends want to get a copy of a sermon or listen to a service again.  To listen to a recent service, you will need login information to protect the Joys and Sorrows shared in the service.  That login information can be gotten from the office.  Please follow the links to the right to access these materials.  Another resource of learning and education is our Joy Library.  That can also be found on the Archives links.
