Our Background

The Reformed Church in America (RCA) has its roots in America back to 1628 when it was begun by a group of Dutch colonists in New Amsterdam (now known as New York City).  It is one of the oldest Protestant churches in the United States.  The Holy Scriptures are the only rule of faith and practice in the RCA.  The Doctrinal Standards are the Belgic Confession of Faith, the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dort. The four governing units in the RCA are the Consistory, the Classis, the Regional Synod and the General Synod.


Sonoma Valley Community Church (SVCC) is part of the Central California Classis.  The management team of SVCC is the Consistory, which consists of the pastor, elders and deacons.


SVCC was established in 1943 by a Dutch Navy Chaplain.  Our church was built in 1945 and reflects the charming and nostalgic architecture of that time.
