A long succession of students, part-time preachers, and pastors served Sycamore Church for short periods.
During 1949 and 1950 a young seminary student named Theodore Kalsbeek served as summer student pastor and, in 1951, Rev. Kalsbeek was called as our pastor and served in that role more than 40 years. Under his leadership Sycamore Church grew from thirty worshippers in that one-room country church with wood stoves and outhouses, to a congregation of over 1100 members and an extensive church campus.
On March 21, 2004 the congregation unanimously called the Rev. Dr. Larry Kent, who had previously served in multiple pastoral positions at First Presbyterian Church of Flint, Michigan, to be the installed Head of Staff. In December of 2018, Dr. Kent announced his intent to retire. The community will begin a new search in April of 2019.
We worship on Sunday mornings at 8:45 and 10:45 am. There are education opportunities for all ages at 9:45am.
Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." The journey of faith always begins with Jesus. Wherever you may be, join us on the journey as disciples of Jesus Christ.
