Kalamazoo Protestant Reformed Church

Who We Are

Kalamazoo PRC

Our congregation has about 65 members. We truly embody the phrase “church family,” as we are not only part of the family of God but are a close-knit congregation. You’ll find being among us to be a warm and welcoming experience! View our brochure to learn more.

PRCA Denomination

We are a member of Classis East of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America and were founded in 1925 when we left the Christian Reformed denomination. As a member of the PRCA, we hold to the historic Christian faith, maintain the glorious Reformed faith, and practice reverent, God-centered worship. For more information on the PRCA, visit www.prca.org.
