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

  • The Church’s Powerful Name

    What’s in a name? Having asked that in the morning service, we will continue our look at the name of Jesus and the power it had for the early church. Peter mentions the name “Jesus” in Acts 4:12, affirming that there is no other name by which people can be saved. But then Peter adds another name to the mix: “Christ.” What does this name mean for us?

  • What's in a Name?

    Names make a difference. Why else would so many go to court to have theirs changed? Why do parents agonize over naming of a child? Why do nicknames have such influence, positive or negative, on people’s lives? That is especially true in the Bible, and no biblical names are more important than those of our Savior. Matthew now moves from the historical significance of Jesus’ family tree to the significance of two of his names: Jesus and Immanuel.

  • Look Who’s Hiding in Jesus’ Family Tree!

    Matthew 1:1-17 You will be a little bored when you read Jesus’ family tree in Matthew 1. But for a Jewish person, this genealogy is anything but bland and boring. On the one hand, it is a very impressive pedigree! But, on closer investigation, this genealogy reveals reminders of colorful people and events that would cause some eyebrow raising and head shaking. Some are downright embarrassing, people and events that you would think Matthew would have hidden. But he didn’t; so what does he want us to learn?
