About Christ Reformed Church of Alexandria
Our church exists to honor and love the LORD God who has called us into fellowship with Him by His Holy Spirit through his Son. We can only achieve this goal of being faithful to God through the Gospel of Jesus Christ who calls us to be transformed by his Word and Spirit.
The first record of the establishment of the Reformed Faith in Alexandria dates from the year 1798 when John Dietrick Aurandt, a young man inspired by the Gospel and studying for the Ministry, began his pastoral work as an itinerant preacher.
However, it was not until 1846 that the plot of land our church presently resides on was deeded over to the German Reformed Church from which we descend. In 1851, our present church building was erected.
Since then, our church has survived through several denominational shifts by virtue of mergers and in present-day remains ardent in her faithfulness to God’s Holy Word.
As a Minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, in the Susquehanna Valley Presbytery, he is an avid reader of Puritans like John Owen and John Bunyan as well as the ancient Church in pastors such as St. Augustine, Athanasius, and John Chrysostom. Having recently attained a Masters of Theology in Historical Theology from Westminster Seminary in Philadelphia, Pastor Angelo is always eager to learn more and study further.
Pastor Valle came to Christ Reformed Church in 2013, and in his time at Christ Reformed Church, he has greatly enjoyed helping the church celebrate their historical Reformed roots in teaching and in worship. In addition to his preaching ministry, Pastor Valle enjoys shepherding his flock in visitation and counseling. Writing for the local newspaper, various blogs, and academic journals has also enabled his ministry to have international reach. Pastor Valle loves spending time with his bride, Marie, their son, Jonathan, and their daughters, Eliana, Thea and Riley.

Held each month on the fourth Sunday immediately following morning worship, Potluck Luncheons are a time for the family of God to be together and enjoy a meal. Everyone is encouraged to bring a covered dish and a friend to share it with.
As people are comprised of both body and soul, God has assigned the office of Deacon to aid the Church with material assistance. We labor in love to reflect the love of Christ in these things.
