Kalamazoo Protestant Reformed Church

Who We Are

Kalamazoo PRC

Our congregation has about 65 close-knit members. We embrace the phrase “church family,” as we are part of the family of God locally and universally. 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.
