Welcome to Vineyard Community Church.

Located in the heart of historic downtown Cohoes, New York, Vineyard  Community Church is a contemporary church that is committed to our vision to have "Hands to Serve- Hearts to Love".

At VCC we are committed to being a community of believers that have a passion to love and serve Jesus and our community.  We believe that our central mission is to do what Jesus did. 

Jesus, first and foremost came "to seek and save" those that are lost and far from him.  He also regularly demonstrated his compassion for the sick through healing them, the poor through feeding them, the religious through challenging them, the bound through freeing them and the believers through deepening them.
