A New URC in Tacoma/Gig Harbor???

Do you live in the Tacoma/Gig Harbor area?  Know anyone who does?  Want to see a confessional Reformed church planted in the area?  The URC is considering a church plant on the Kitsap peninsula and is currently gauging interest.

Here's the scoop:

"For those that live in the Tacoma/ Gig Harbor, WA area: Are you interested in seeing a solid, Confessional Reformed church in your area? There is currently in the early planning stages a Bible study/church plant in Gig Harbor with the goal of establishing a URC church. Since this is still in its infancy we are just trying to gather some rough idea as to how many people would be interested in this work. This is a unique opportunity that the Lord has placed before us and we hope and pray that the field is ready for the harvest on the Kitsap Peninsula.

So if you live near Gig Harbor and this interests you then please send an e-mail to Mark Vander Pol at or check our blog at If you know somebody that lives close to that location then please forward this information on to them! This group needs to know that you are out there so please contact them!"




Yes, this is the same Mark Vander Pol who prepared the eschatology charts posted on this blog.  He's about to graduate from Westminster Seminary California and is a great guy.


Please help spread the word!

Kim, thanks so much for helping with this, but your final point is most debatable.

You might want to be more careful in your working, Kim. Faith Presbyterian church (PCA) is in Tacoma and is as Reformed as they come. Rob Rayburn's father found the PCA (seminary) and Rob himself has been faithfully preaching the Word for 30 years. He took no exception to the Westminster and if often asked to speak at URC and OPC pulpits.
Gig Harbor and the peninsula need Reformed churches -- my mother in Belfair can attest to that. But Tacoma has several and is no wasteland.

My close friends live in Gig Harbor. I wish I could get them to go to a church, let alone a Reformed one. I hope to move there in the next year or two. Perhaps I'LL go to that church.

Robert -

I am the one who gave Kim the verbiage for this blog posting, and I didn't mean any disrespect to Faith PCA if that is how it might have come across.
