HistoryEdit

Boston Square Christian Reformed church was organized in 1942. Like Calvin CRC, organized in 1946, it had an incredible growth rate during its first dozen years. This was followed by a period of slower growth which peaked in 1960. Since then, there has been a long, steady decline in membership.
