A community of believers

The Altamont Reformed Church family invites you to share in our worship and join in our fellowship. For more than 125 years, the church has served Altamont Village while reaching out to nearby communities, the Capital Region, and the world.

Altamont gears up for Vacation Bible School

This summer's Vacation Bible School is Aug. 22 - 26 from 9 a.m. through 12 p.m. at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church. Children from 3 years old (as of Dec. 1, 2015) through having completed 5th grade are invited.

The ecumenical VBS is sponsored jointly by ARC, St. John's, and St. Lucy/St. Bernadette Roman Catholic churches. Kids will spend each day spelunking through field-tested activity stations with their Cave Crews (small groups of up to 5 kids and one leader). Every station is designed to reinforce the daily Bible Point in a hands-on, interactive way that keeps everyone engaged.

Participant forms are available at the three sponsoring churches, or you may email a request for forms to altamontvbs@gmail.com. Youth who have completed 6th grade, high school students, and adults are still needed as volunteers. Contact Melanie Tuxbury at tuxburyarc@yahoo.com.

Ecumenical worship in the park: Aug. 21

On Sunday, Aug. 21, the morning worship service will be held at the gazebo in the park at the center of Altamont Village. Congregations from ARC and St. John's Lutheran will join in praise and worship at 10 a.m. Bring your own chair. In the event of rain, the service will be held at St. John's on Maple Avenue.
