It’s great to be back!

Pastor Lyle grew up at Forreston Reformed Church, (FRC) Amy joined him when they married, and they were farming in the Baileyville area, raising their 3 children, when they felt a call to go into ministry.

Pastor Lyle has pastored churches in Raritan, IL, Lafayette, IN, and Sheboygan, WI, and most recently served as the Classis (district) Leader of the Reformed Churches in WI.

Returning to FRC is a rewarding challenge! To help a small-town church to thrive in a changing culture is challenging, but also exciting as I see the congregation breathe in new life. We have a great spirit in the congregation, great workers, leaders, and lots of love for Jesus and each other.

At FRC we strive to be a positive force in the community. That is seen in our cooperative work with other churches, with the Community Center Food Pantry, the school district, and other opportunities to help and bless. Pastor Lyle also serves as the chaplain for the Fire Dept./EMS district.

Pastor Lyle and Amy enjoy the small-town dynamics and being part of a supportive community. They enjoy “neighboring,” meeting new friends, sharing a meal, and getting coffee with people. Amy has a love for women’s ministries, gatherings, Bible Studies, reading, and grandkids! Lyle enjoys sports, gardening, and fixing things. Together they enjoy traveling and exploring new restaurants.
