Maas Auditorium is located at 264 Columbia Avenue on the Hope College campus. The public is invited, and admission is free.
The Christian Reformed Church in North America was founded in 1857 and the lives of its pastors have been well documented, while the stories of their wives have been sadly ignored. Join historian Janet Sjaarda Sheeres as she brings the challenges of these important women to light for the first time.
