All are welcome to come worship at Old Saratoga.  Our sanctuary is accessible by stairs or a platform/wheelchair lift.

Currently, masks are suggested throughout the service if you have not been vaccinated.

The worship service begins at 10 A.M. and normally lasts for one hour.  An order of worship is available from the ushers and visitors may sit anywhere in the sanctuary.

The service is normally led by our Pastor, an ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament.  PASTOR SUSAN KERR: 518-366-3648

Children are welcome to sit with their parents.  There are currently no Sunday School classes.

A weekly scripture lesson usually follows the Lectionary – a three-year cycle of scripture readings used by many denominations throughout the world.  Scripture is usually read by a reader scheduled in advance.

Hymns and prayers, scripture reading and sermon, an offering, and anthem sung by the choir are all regularly part of the service.

Our traditional order of worship (liturgy) is divided into three parts which emphasize preparation, hearing and response to the Word of God.

Two sacraments celebrated are

  1. the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion (held the first Sunday of each month)
  2. the Sacrament of Baptism upon request for people of all ages.

The worship year begins four weeks before Christmas with the season of Advent.  Following Christmas the seasons of Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost are arranged to follow the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.
