A welcoming church

  • It’s easy to find us: You will find our church located just off Stadium Drive in Kalamazoo nestled on top of a sloping hill beside Arcadia Creek. Our wooded grounds are home to an occasional deer and fox, and a faithful and energetic congregation that delights in sharing the Good News of a Risen Christ! 
  • Join us for Sunday Worship: You are invited to worship with us on Sundays beginning at 9:30 a.m. 
  • Children’s Sunday School: At the start of the Sunday Worship Service, children gather up front for a short story time.  Following the children’s sermon at approximately 9:45 a.m., children ages 3 thru 6th grade are dismissed to attend Sunday School. Parents may pick up their children from the Children’s Worship Center at 10:45 a.m. Older children are encouraged to remain in the sanctuary and be a part of the Sunday service. Here, they will experience the sights and sounds of the worship service and learn from the reading of God’s Word. 
  • Nursery: A fully staffed nursery is available for infants and toddlers. 
  • Dress: There is no standard dress. We just want you to be comfortable and part of our family. 
  • After the service: Join us immediately following the service for a time of fellowship and refreshments.
  • Transform your week: Come ready and expecting the service to strengthen and empower you, energizing you for the week ahead!

Worshiping with voices and instruments

Music ministry is a central part of our Sunday worship at Second Reformed Church. We have a strong music program that includes a variety of music styles all aimed at leading us in our corporate worship of God. We have a traditional choir, an extraordinary bell choir, solo and ensemble performances, and exceptional organ and piano accompaniment. 


Most importantly, congregational singing is the hallmark of the Second Family worship experience. The entire congregation is a choir in itself! Simply put, we enjoy singing, and we'd love to add your voice to ours in praise to God!

Proclaiming biblical truths

Our services are biblically based and speak the eternal truths of God’s Word for our lives today. 

 

Audio recordings of Sunday sermons are available. Video recordings are in progress. See Media in the We Are Second drop down menu for updates.

Worshiping God in sacred space

Worshiping in sacred space

A beautiful setting: Our Sunday worship experience is enhanced by the beauty and design of our sanctuary setting consecrated to advancing God's Kingdom on Earth.  


Sensory friendly: Our service is friendly to young people and adults with sensory or anxiety issues. The worship space is well lit, and the music is of a moderate volume. Although we do use a large screen, the visual impact is not overwhelming. 


Safety and comfort: We strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment for worship and ministry. Our building is wheelchair accessible with zero-clearance entrances on both upper and lower levels. An elevator provides safe and easy access to both floors. Parking is plentiful at the front and back of the building.


Amenities:  Our church building includes multiple restrooms, upper and lower level kitchens, a gymnasium and showers.

  • Ages 3 thru 6th grade meet from 9:45 a.m. till 10:45 a.m. Children are instructed in God’s Word in a loving and highly creative way. Parents may pick up their children from the Children’s Worship Center at 10:45 a.m.
