History in the United States

The Dutch Reformed Church started in the United States in 1628. The first meeting was in New Amsterdam, New Netherlands (now known as New York City, New York).  In 1819, it was known as the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church. It's current name is Reformed Church in America.

Services were held in Dutch until 1764, although in the mid 19th century there was a revival of using Dutch only as more Netherland immigrants came to the U.S.
