Kalamazoo Protestant Reformed Church

I’m New to KPRC

We look forward to having you visit Kalamazoo PRC for the first time! Here is what to expect:

Sunday service times

We have two services every Sunday: a morning service at 9:30 a.m. and an evening service at 5 p.m. Each service is between 1 and 1-1/2 hours long.


Our church has its own parking lot with plenty of available space. 


Our entrance is barrier-free and we have accessibility features in the restrooms.


Children of all ages are welcome in our worship services and family worship is encouraged. We do not have a staffed nursery space, but if your children are unable to sit through a service, you are welcome to worship in our multi-purpose room. We have some toys for infants and toddlers, or you may bring your own. Audio from the worship service plays through a speaker.

Order of worship

On Sundays, printed bulletins are available just inside the sanctuary doors on the book shelves on the right and left sides. The back page lists the order of the worship service and the words of the Apostles’ Creed and doxologies, while the inside left page contains the song numbers and Scripture passages for the day’s services. The service itself is simple and traditional. The first portion is liturgical, containing songs, prayers, and readings. The second and longest part is the sermon, based on a section of doctrine from the Heidelberg Catechism or a portion of scripture. The service will end with a benediction (blessing).


Our pews hold KJV Bibles for you to use, but feel free to bring your own Bible or use an app. We pray using the language of the KJV Bible—calling God “Thee” or “Thou.”


A prelude will be played for about 10 minutes before the worship service begins, either on piano or organ. This is a good time to find your seat and prepare for worship. During the service we sing exclusively from the 1912 Psalter, which contains versified adaptations of the biblical Psalms that were inspired by the Spirit of God to be used in His own worship. The singing is accompanied by piano or organ. A postlude will be played at the conclusion of the service.


After the worship service many people congregate in the narthex for a time of fellowship. You are warmly invited to stay awhile to visit with us and maybe make some new friends, or you are free to head home if that is your preference.


Our worship services are live-streamed on SermonAudio, but only the sermon will be posted for later viewing. During certain portions of the service (such as during songs), the camera pans back to a wide view that includes most of the sanctuary.


The building has security cameras installed both inside and outside, and the external doors are secured from the inside several minutes after the service starts. The external windows in the sanctuary and multi-purpose room are translucent.


We are part of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America. We began in 1924 following a split from the Christian Reformed Churches. We have maintained the traditional worship style that was used from our beginning.
