johnWelcome to The First Church in Albany website.  First Church is a  community rooted in Jesus Christ with a long history in Albany and a continuing commitment to ministry in the  city. People of many different backgrounds and experiences have found a home here. We are a diverse congregation nurturing each other in our spiritual journeys and working  together in ministry in our community and in the world.  I  hope that the information  provided here will give you an introduction to the life and  ministry of our congregation.

For an even better introduction you are invited to join us in worship on Sunday or participate in one of several opportunities for spiritual growth and mission.
