About Us & What to Expect

Worship Service

Our worship service contains a mixture of both traditional and contemporary elements. A typical service includes worship music, prayer, announcements, communion, scripture reading, expository preaching and fellowship.

Nursery & Sunday School

We have a nursery for mothers with children under the age of 4 years old (if needed). All other ages are encouraged to participate with their families in the main worship service. It's our conviction and hope that our children, from a young age, would learn to be a part of the larger body in order to facilitate formative bonds of friendship with fellow believers and to learn how to worship our great God together.

Elders/Teachers

Jacob Whitaker

I've lived in Unalaska cumulatively for more than 10 years. I spent several years here during my youth and in 2008 my wife Beth and I moved back to the island. We now have four young children Hedya, Jadon, Nadia and Enoch. I've worked for the City of Unalaska since 2008 within the IT department and served as a local youth pastor of Unalaska Christian Fellowship for 8 years. I enjoy studying and teaching the Scriptures as well as outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and kayaking when the opportunities arise.

Albert Burnham

I have lived in Unalaska since 2009. My wife Kristen and I have a beautiful young daughter named Grace. I work for the City of Unalaska as the Recreation Manager for the Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation. I served as an adult Sunday school teacher and co-leader of the Unalaska Christian Fellowship Youth Ministry for several years. I enjoy reading, studying, and teaching the Scriptures and seeing people filled with a passion for God’s Word. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and have recently taken up balloon art.

Member Affirmation of Faith

We believe that man was created by God in His own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual and eternal death, which is separation from God; that as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners by choice and therefore under condemnation. We believe that those who repent and forsake sin and trust Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and become new creatures...

Elder Affirmation of Faith

We believe that God’s intentions, revealed in the Bible, are the supreme and final authority in testing all claims about what is true and what is right. In matters not addressed by the Bible, what is true and right is assessed by criteria consistent with the teachings of Scripture. Its authority is not limited to spiritual, religious or redemptive themes but includes its assertions in such fields as history and science...

Member Covenant

This is simply implied in agreeing to hold each other accountable to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord. As members of the Unalaska Reformed Church, we affirm this covenant with one another by God’s grace for our good and ultimately for God’s glory...
