Altamont Reformed Church

OUR COMMUNITY WELCOMES YOU

The Altamont Reformed Church family invites you to share in our worship and join in our fellowship. We come from many walks of life and have joined together for one purpose: to learn what it means to love God and love others.

If you go to church regularly or have never attended before ...
if you have great faith or great doubts ...
if you have followed or have failed ...
you are welcome in our community.

Please join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. either in the sanctuary or on Zoom.
