Welcome to Kelsey Creek Church! After over a decade of discussion and discernment, we voted as a congregation to change our name from Bellevue Christian Reformed Church to Kelsey Creek Church in June 2022. We officially made this change in September 2022.
We changed our name in order to remove a growing barrier with our community. We have been increasingly finding that people in our community are confused by terms like “reformed” and “Christian Reformed.” As such, we often find ourselves talking about what the Protestant Reformers did in 1517 or the Dutch did in 1857 rather than what God is doing in our congregation now.
We are happy to explain these unfamiliar terms and to introduce you to the family of churches that we belong to, the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA); however, that feels like a secondary conversation to us. We want the first conversation (and sometimes the only conversation) to be about Jesus and the mission that he is calling us to as his church.
We are also happy to share more about our name change, but we are even happier to share what God is doing at Kelsey Creek Church and how you can be a part of it. To start learning more, view our homepage or contact our church office.
