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

  • How to Be Right with God

    Years ago, there was an extremely talented law school student whose life was changed by a couple of scary events: his friend’s sudden death and his own narrow escape from a lightning strike. Suddenly he became terribly afraid for his own salvation. How could he be right with God and find peace for his soul? He eventually found it when he took to heart Romans 3. It changed his life, and it changed the history of the church.Scripture: Romans 3:9-31

  • Jesus and the Pharisees

    If you looked in a dictionary, you might find the following definition of pharisaical: “observing the form but neglecting the spirit of religion.” A Pharisee is often defined as a self-righteous, hypocritical person. These are probably the definitions we grew up with. But one thing I’ve found in exploring the cultural background of the Bible: it often explodes your definitions and assumptions. And nowhere is that more true than in our understanding of the Pharisees and their relationship with Jesus!Scripture: Matthew 23

  • A Tale of Two Sinners

    As we near the Passion Week of Jesus, we encounter in the story of Jesus’ suffering two sinners: Peter and Judas. Matthew puts these stories together for a purpose: to compare the sins and to contrast the responses. What is Matthew trying to teach the church of his day? And how is God speaking through these stories to us today?Scripture: Matthew 26:69 – 27:5
