Cutlerville East Christian Reformed Church is a family. It’s literally a family, with multiple generations worshiping together. But it’s also a family by choice. Their care for each other draws people from a wide geographical area – Byron Center, Caledonia, Grand Rapids, Grandville, Jenison and Wyoming.

They pay attention to practical needs. They provide financial assistance for families in the Christian schools. Their Loaves & Fishes meal ministry keeps the church freezer stocked with lovingly prepared meals for those who need them due to illness, surgery recovery, or because a new baby has joined the family. They don’t forget about those who can no longer attend church, but bring the church to them, organizing worship services at local nursing homes.

The pastors and leaders seek to build a solid foundation in the Word and in the faith for every member, so there are multiple opportunities for all ages to receive biblical instruction and encouragement. It starts on Sundays with children’s worship, Sunday school, children’s choir, catechism, youth group meetings, and multiple adult Bible study and fellowship meetings. And proceeds through Monday and Tuesday adult Bible studies, Wednesday GEMS and Cadets, Thursday adult and handbell choir rehearsals, and Saturday morning men’s Bible study, not to mention youth group events and adult small groups that meet based on common interests.

Through these small groups and strong biblical preaching and teaching, the faithful at Cutlerville East are equipped to become ambassadors for Christ in their neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, and beyond.

Latest Sermons

  • Faith within an Evil Society

    Noah and his society faced lived in a dry land, with very little rainfall. Yet Noah announces that God is sending a flood and he begins building an ark! It had to soundridiculous. Today, this may be the way people respond to talk of God’s final judgment. The flood of the Old Testament was the final judgment for that society. AndNoah’s faith response has something to say to our faith response to God.Scripture: Hebrews 11:7; Genesis 6

  • The Temptation of Jesus

    Imagine you are Gospel writer with the task of convincing people that Jesus is not just another claiming to be Messiah; he really is! Thankfully God has given you a lot to  work with. He has shown how his birth and childhood fulfill prophecy. And at his baptism we hear the voice of God authenticating Jesus and we see the Holy Spirit empowering him. But now Jesus goes into the wilderness to be tempted. How does this fit into your presentation of Messiah?Scripture: Luke 4:1-13

  • Faith in Worship

    Hebrews 11 gives us a number of Old Testament examples of faith. The example of Abel deals with our attitude in worship. While the Genesis 4 story emphasizes his murder and the spread of sin (and that certainly plays into God’s evaluation of Cain), Hebrews 11:4 comes from another angle: God’s acceptance or rejection of our worship. It forces us to ask the question: How do we worship God: from the heart or going through the motions? How does God react to our worship?Scripture: Hebrews 11:4; Genesis 4:1-16
