At the Rotterdam Community Center, we nourish our neighbors in mind, body, and soul, and serve as a community hub where all people can connect to the resources they need.

It's Giving Tuesday!
Please help us reach our goal of having 500 individual donations of $1 or more by December 31st!

Formed by the historic 2021 consolidation of the former Trinity Reformed Church into Messiah Lutheran Church, the former Trinity church space is now a resource for everyone in our community, no matter their religious affiliation! We are an open table for the people of Rotterdam and the Greater Schenectady area where neighbors of all backgrounds can gather safely and without judgement to support, learn and grow together.

The “three legs” of that open table, all crosscut by a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, are food security, mental health & wellbeing, and arts, culture & self expression. We host a wide variety of regular weekly offerings including Community Crafters, Recovery and Support Groups, Zumba, and Yoga, and monthly events such as monthly free Movie Nights and Community Game Nights. The RCC also houses our Bread of Life Food Pantry and Produce Pantry Programs. We also host monthly community concerts and other one-time arts and culture events, all of which can be found on our SCHEDULE page and on our Facebook page.

We welcome and actively invite people of all ages, races, ethnicities, nationalities, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, relationship statuses, socioeconomic statuses, disabilities, and mental and physical conditions into full participation in activities at the Rotterdam Community Center.
