Our church was started by several Dutch immigrant families, who met in one another’s homes at the beginning. As more Dutch families moved into the area, the church started to grow, and the need for a more suitable place to worship for the budding congregation became apparent. Initially, a space was rented in a nearby Ferrisburgh church, and eventually the Ferrisburgh meeting hall was rented instead. It is here, with the support of their mother church in Whitinsville, Mass., that Ferrisburgh Christian Reformed Church formally began.
As the church continued to grow, it soon became clear that the current building was growing too small, and that another place would need to be found. It was at this time that the congregation decided to build the current church building on the outskirts of Vergennes, with the idea of also housing the Christian school which they had started several years earlier. The groundbreaking of this property occurred in early spring of 1976. Construction was completed later that year and the new church was named the Champlain Valley Christian Reformed Church. While the size of our congregation has changed over the years, our faith in what the Lord has planned for us remains the foundation by which we worship.
