We visited the area from Maine where we attend a very small OPC church. Being long time admirers of Doctor Kennedy, we wanted to worship here on the Sunday we had available. The service was elegant and enriching, and the choir was magnificent. One experience says little, of course, but the sermon, while fine, certainly was not of the calibre... More

A great place to take in a Sunday Service. Large choirs and attendance. Beatiful place to have a quiet moment. Also the choirs are incredible.

This was probably the premier church in the country but now now. Very sad. Dr. Kennedy is sorely missed.

I have been coming to CRPC since 1970 and very personally know the history of the church. Much change has happened in recent years, but we still see God working. As we all meet challenges in our personal lives, so the church meets challenges in the church . We adapt and, we learn from the church adapting, yet remaining true... More

My son used to be in the Singing Sons and they decorated the church beautifully for the Holiday Concert. It was a very nice evening.

The church is in a transition in finding a senior minister, but has 3 excellent associate minister and several seminary professors anchoring the church. The founding minister, Dr D James Kennedy died about 10 years... More

I attended this church a few times when Dr. Kennedy was the pastor. It is a church for the old school parishioner. Many of the families have attended this church for generations. The church is very beautiful and very traditional. I recommend a visit and if you are from the very traditional point of view, you will be at home... More

This is a good, solid, family-friendly Presbyterian church; not at all stuffy. Music leans toward contemporary, but not over the top. Preaching is solid, Bible based, not judgmental. While this church has a long and conservative history, new pastor and staff have taken it into this century. While there is a good base of family attendance, during the winter months,... More

Big church with loud, contemporary music. Greeters are exceptionally friendly. Lots of small groups. Going through a pastor change.
