Who We Are:
Reynolda Church, an Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC), is one church that will soon have multiple locations throughout the Piedmont-Triad area of North Carolina. We exist to share the healing presence of Jesus Christ, which we have so richly experienced ourselves, with those in our region.

Our worship revolves around these beliefs, is Spirit-led and filled, celebratory in nature, and contemporary in style.
