Faith Chapel began in 1915 as Church of the Covenant Reformed Church.
In 1957, Covenant had fallen on hard times and hired a Stated Supply pastor named Rev. Dr. Richard Munn Suffern. In his retirement, Dr. Suffern , began
mission work in the building under the leadership of Elder Richard Kooistra. The work grew and Elder Kooistra became Rev. Kooistra. When Rev. Kooistra moved to Wisconsin, Raymond Timms' was appointed to continue the work. Under Pastor Timms' leadership, Faith Chapel was organized as an RCA congregation in 1990.
After years of faithful service, Pastor Timms retired in 2009.
In December 2009, Darryl Redmond was received as Minister under contract and in November 2010 he became the first installed pastor by classis of Faith Chapel Reformed Church. Through Pastor Redmond God has restored, replenished and renewed the witness of the church in this great community.
This strong and vibrant congregation has come together to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Faith Chapel has been standing for 106 years, spreading the word of God.
We are grateful and give glory to God.
