Welcome to

Chancellor Reformed Church

Chancellor Reformed Church has been a family for over 117 years, living under God's banners of love, mercy and grace.  We gather to live in to worshiping corporately (Hebrews 10:24-25) once a week so that we can be encouraged and informed how to be daily and private worshipers.  We gather to spur one another on to love and good deeds.  As we live out the Great Commandment (loving God), we'll live out the Great Commission (loving people).  We are dedicated to loving and serving God and all people.  Inwardly mindful while being externally focused so that all might know the good news of forgiveness, love and a restored relationship with God through Christ.  We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation.


SUNDAY - 9:30 AM

We'd love to have you join us but can't host you this Sunday for worship due to Covid19.


We are glad you are here!

We encourage you to join us for Sunday worship and fellowship.

Meet the Staff


Inwardly mindful, while becoming more externally focused -- that's what we are becoming.  Founded in 1903, Chancellor Reformed Church has been doing ministry in Jesus' name all along.  We are part of the Reformed Church in America (RCA -- in America since 1608; and all over the world since the 1500s).  We are one of many churches doing a series of hundreds of things in and to Lincoln + Turner Counties, South Dakota, in North America, and in the world -- all so that a lost and broken world can know how much God loves them.  

Amy Abbas

Junior and Senior High students from various school districts all come together under the umbrella of one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Amy has been a long-timer with us and we see the fruit of her passion and perseverance what with her having made deep connections with students and a whole new generation of them now.

Director of Youth Ministries

Melanie Klock

Melanie has been keeping our building clean as well as serves with so much passion in other creative areas (bulletin boards, signs, arranging rooms).  We're so grateful to have her on the team.


Pastor Marc de Waard

Pastor Marc and his wife Kathy became part of this loving congregation in August 2017.  Kathy teaches piano, heads up our Sunday education team as well as our Praise Team, and substitutes at Parker schools.  PM loves preaching and teaching, making disciples, and getting area churches to work together.  He has an Hons. BA, a B.Ed., a MA (in history) and a M.Div.  He loves it when people borrow books from his library -- or come and help him weed at the community garden!

Praise Team

Blending the hymns of earlier generations but to a new beat -- with the contemporary, this team has a passion to lead the congregation to the throne of God.  At CRC we have the freedom to worship as the Spirit leads, be that kneeling, standing, raising our hands.  We extol our God in our words and in our body language, all with the support of vocalists and many instruments.

We have pianists bi-weekly, and the Praise Team bi-weekly, making for a great blend of music to proffer our King.
