First Church (First Reformed Church) is located on the corner of Broadway and Union Streets, just two blocks from the main town square in a beautiful Iowa town called Pella. Pella is famous for its quaintness, its friendliness, and its Dutch heritage, yet Pella is also a town going through many changes. And yes, in case you were wondering, Pella is home to the Pella Corporation, the world famous window manufacturer.
Another interesting fact about First Church is that it came by its name honestly. First Reformed Church is the oldest RCA congregation with a continuous ministry west of the Mississippi River, organized in 1856. The Holy Spirit is at work in the hearts of its people, and others are catching the vision to reach those who are disconnected from Jesus. It is a ministry that is going through a rebirth, as it continues with a forward movement and an outward focus.
