Kids Hope

First Reformed Church partners with Kids Hope USA at Quincy Elementary School in Zeeland. Mentors from First Reformed Church meet with one student for one hour each week. The time commitment is small, but the impact is huge- both for the students and the leaders!


If you are interested in learning more about this important ministry or becoming a mentor, contact one of our co-directors, Rose VanKley or Mary Kingshott, at kidshope@frcz.org.

Hand 2 Hand

First Reformed Church partners with Hand2Hand Ministries at Quincy Elementary School by providing backpacks full of nutritious food to families experiencing food insecurity. Backpacks are discreetly distributed to students each week so families have adequate food each weekend. The mission of Hand2Hand Ministries is to eliminate local childhood hunger and to cover children and families in prayer. 


If you would like to get involved in this important ministry, contact Jackie Reimink or call the church office (616-772-9129) for more information.

Wyld Life

Young Life's mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. Christy DePree serves as our Young Life Church partner and leads Zeeland Wyld Life with a team of Hope College students: they build relationships with middle school students by going where the kids are. Wyld Life leaders engage in "contact work", and First Reformed Church hosts Wyld Life Club for middle school students on Sunday afternoons.


To learn more about Wyld Life or to get involved, visit the First Church youth website, the Greater Holland Area Young Life website, or contact Christy DePree (christy@frcz.org)
