Spring Rain Church is a church plant sponsored by Avery Street Church, Classis Atlantic Northeast (our regional group of Christian Reformed congregations), and Resonate Global Mission.  It was begun as an outreach to Chinese students in South Hamilton, MA, but continues as a Mission House located in Malden, MA, where there are many Chinese immigrants and others of Chinese descent.  In addition to bilingual Sunday worship, the church offers daily morning prayer, Friday Night Worship and Prayer, small groups and local outreach.  The church hopes not only to minister to Chinese individuals and families, but to become a multicultural congregation.  The church is pastored by Polo Kim, a graduate of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.  Polo and his wife Dandan have one son and are expecting another in November 2022.
