Get Connected

At First Reformed we believe that we are all called to live as missionaries. Whether that takes us around the world or around the block - we want to be always on the lookout for ways in which we can join in God's mission of love and grace to all people. This can take shape in many ways.

Just as children held, and hold, a special place in the heart of Jesus - we honor and cherish our children as well.  

We are continuously offering opportunities for our children to grow in and learn about Jesus. Some of these include Children's Worship during the worship service on Sunday mornings, Sunday School at 11am on Sundays, Wednesday Night events, special Family Events,  and Summer camps.

Youth meet with leaders, play games, enjoy food, and study every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00pm.
