We welcome you to the website of Edgerton Protestant Reformed Church. This site is produced and maintained by its evangelism committee under the supervision of the church’s council. Edgerton has been an established member of the denomination of the Protestant Reformed Churches of America (PRCA) since 1938. Together with all the churches in the denomination and with its sister churches abroad, Edgerton stands upon the infallible truth of God’s word as confessed in the Reformed three forms of unity—the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dordrecht.
In this website you can peruse several introductory articles regarding Edgerton’s history, the PRCA, and our faith and worship. Also available are many recordings of sermons, which you can order and listen to online. Many pamphlets and articles are available for free download, and distinctively Reformed books can be ordered at the site.
Follow the links to the website of the PRCA to find additional Reformed material for your use and benefit.
Our prayer is that you will be profited by these materials and that the Lord, the king of his church, will use these means for the furtherance of his gospel and kingdom.
The Protestant Reformed Churches, while honoring the authority of its major assemblies, emphasize that each congregation is a self-governing body of elders, chosen from the members of the congregation. The designation of churches reflects this strong belief in the autonomy of the local church.
Our Church Council is made up of both elders and deacons. There are currently 3 elders and 2 deacons - men who are nominated by the Council and elected at the congregational meeting. Elders serve a three-year term, with one elder rotating in each year.
Our various committees provide additional opportunities for members to exercise and develop their gifts of leadership.
We will receive as members all those who know Jesus Christ as their Savior and confess the truth of Scripture as explained in our Reformed creeds – the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dordt. In keeping with the fact that God’s covenant is in the generation of believers, we also receive as members the children of believing members. These children are received as minor members of the church through baptism. Their membership becomes full when they come to a mature faith in Jesus Christ and can make a credible confession of their faith before the church.
Membership classes are provided for those interested in joining our church.

He is married to Kelsey, and they have three boys, Lucas, Zachary, and Trevor.
We believe that Christian education is an important tool for training a child of God. We support the cause of Christian education with our gifts of time, finances, and prayers.
The Christian schools that we support are parental-run schools; they are not parochial (church-run) schools. These schools, however, do instruct their students in distinctively reformed doctrines, particularly as they are understood by the Protestant Reformed Churches.
Our children and young people primarily attend these schools:
