Due to Covid-19, our primary Sunday gatherings are still online. (We are starting to experiment with some in-person gatherings, but online is your best, most consistent option.)
Our community gathers online for teaching and worship on Sunday mornings. You can expect practical teaching, music and a casual feel. All are welcome to attend and participate in the life of our church.
Online Worship Gathering: Every Sunday at 10:10am
Elevate is the student ministry of Christ's Church Guilderland. During this unusual time of social distancing and quarantine, we are providing two environments for students in 6th-12th grade to stay engaged and connect with each other. These environments are designed to strategically invite teenagers on a journey into deeper relationships with their peers, leaders and Jesus. Each environment is created with every teenager in mind - the kid who's grown up in church and the first-time visitor too.
Elevate Discussion Groups: Every Sunday at 11:00am
After our online Services (guilderland.online.church) students are invited to join zoom breakout groups to discuss the message and how it relates to their lives with their small groups. Small groups are based off grade and gender. Students can click here to join the meeting at 11:00am Sunday morning. Meeting ID is 641-286-686. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the required password to join the call.

Preschool: Every Sunday @ 9:15am
PRESCHOOL in Kid Connection welcomes kids ages 2-4 years; or until they move up to kindergarten. Our small group leaders are passionate about God’s love and sharing His word with your child(ren). Kids will take part in small group play that introduces the bible story of the day, then the group will watch a fun and engaging bible story video and then dance and sing along to some uplifting and encouraging songs. Children will explore three truths: God mad me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
Currently, there is not a separate online class for preschoolers. As a family, you can watch the bible story together and download the parant activity page on our private Facebook page.
Kindergarten – 5th Grade Students: Every Sunday at 9:15am
Our Sunday services are dedicated to helping children grow in wisdom, faith and friendship. It is designed to shape identity through planting these truths in the heart of every elementary-age child:
- I need to make the wise choice. (Wisdom)
- I can trust God no matter what. (Faith)
- I should treat others the way I want to be treated. (Friendship)
Kids can join their Small Group Leaders and friends for a virtual Zoom service from 9:15-10:00am. Just like a normal Sunday at CCG, kids get to see each other, have a time of worship, watch the bible story together and talk about how they can apply it to their everyday lives.

During this time, we will be providing families with everything kids experience during one of our online church services, via our private Facebook pages* in case you aren't able to join us online Sunday Morning at 9:15am. We know that you are probably feeling overwhelmed with everything and don't want to add anything "extra" to your schedule... so, at your leisure, feel free to watch and engage with your kids as a family with this video experience on your own schedule.
