Albany Lutheran Cluster

Mission and Purpose

The Albany Lutheran Cluster is an intentional partnership of the four Albany-area ELCA congregations. Current activities include combined worship services for special days, faith formation gatherings (such as book discussion groups), and service projects and collections. Each congregation also operates independently, with its own regular worship services, pastor, building, and other distinct ministries.
