OUR Story

Being the presence of Jesus in the community was the original purpose when the church formed in Jamestown in 1889, as Second Reformed Church.  With great faith and determination, a church building was dedicated two years later in 1891.


Today, JRC continues to strive to be the presence of Jesus to approximately 300 members in 100 families with approximately 200 worshipping on any given Sunday.  A staff of three coordinates ministries that include pastoral life, church life, youth and worship.  As a church we also desire to be the presence of Jesus to each other, to our community and to the world. 


Jamestown Reformed Church is a member of the Zeeland Classis and belongs to the Regional Synod of The Great Lakes.  For more information about the RCA, its ministry and beliefs visit www.rca.org.


Our vision in ministry is to grow its members spiritually and grow the Kingdom in our community.  We hope that you, in whatever place you are in your spiritual journey, will join us in our story of being that presence of Jesus, to each other, the community and the world.
