First Christian Reformed Church

Chatham, Ontario

Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to take some time to explore and get to know our family here at First Church.
Here at First Church we are more that just a group of believers who come together for worship. We are a family, bound together in Jesus Christ.
We invite you to participate in our ministries and programs, all of which strive to bring us together in true fellowship, strengthen our faith, further the Kingdom, and give glory to God.

You are reminded of this coming Friday, February 24 of our congregational meeting primarily to deal with the proposed budget for 2017. 
As usual we will be having a POTLUCK DINNER at 6 PM.  
We ask that you please bring your own plates and utensils if possible.  This will ensure that everyone can attend the meeting which will begin at 7PM.

Pastor Nathaniel Van Denend has accepted the call that was extended to him by First Church.

Pastor Nate and his wife Crystal and their 2 children hope to move to Chatham at the end of May and begin his ministry among us starting the first week of June 2017. 
As First Church, we are thankful to our God for bringing us together and pray that the time of transitioning may be blessed by our Lord for Pastor Nate and his family along with Maranatha CRC in Woodbridge.


We call ourself:

Christian because we belong to Jesus Christ and want to be his followers.
We recognize as fellow-Christians all people who accept the teachings of the Bible as summarized in the Apostle’s Creed.
Reformed because we're part of that historic branch of the Christian church that follows the teachings of 16th-century reformer John Calvin, who struggled to return Christianity to its biblical roots.
Church because God has called us to be a fellowship of his people in the world.
We often call ourselves "the First CRC of Chatham" for short.
