the Reformed Church in America
We’re glad you’re here. We are ordinary people on an extraordinary journey, learning to love and serve like Jesus. Come with us!
In this constantly changing world, we like to say we’re “reformed and reforming according to the word of God.” We embrace fresh ideas and hold on to what’s best about our deep, rich past. (We need almost 400 candles to light our birthday cake!)
We make a difference by bringing education, medical care, clean water, and nutritious food to the people who need it most. We are committed to living out God’s love throughout the U.S. and Canada and all around the world.
