Local Churches

In addition to CRU's weekly meetings and our collegiate small groups, we hope that students have the opportunity to attend Sunday church services. Here are some churches attended regularly by other students in CRU. If you're interested in visiting one, get in touch with us at a weekly meeting and we can connect you with a ride.

Victorious Life Christian Church

Based in Troy, New York, Victorious Life serves individuals and families throughout the Capital Region. We are ordinary people from all walks of life, with imperfect and often messy lives, who desire to know and love Jesus Christ and be transformed by His gospel. As a community, we are growing and learning to serve one another, our city and our world. Beginning as a small house church, we now reach thousands of households in our city through our local missions work. Victorious Life is a place where all are welcome, regardless of questions, doubts, backgrounds or struggles. Our desire is to grow as a multi-generational, multi-ethnic congregation with increasing gospel influence in the city of Troy, the Capital Region and beyond. We invite you to partner with us in this unfolding story of God's love and redemption. Service at 10a. http://www.vlcctroy.org
