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 over Insecurity

    Moses lived a life that was characterized by faith. He fled Egypt at one point, but eventually returned to lead Israel out of their captivity. He could easily be called a “hero of faith.” But Exodus 3-4 reminds us that so-called “heroes” are just human beings with weaknesses, failures, insecurities. God helped them, and can help us, overcome those insecurities through faith.Scripture: Hebrews 11:23-28; Exodus 3-4

  • Jesus the Parable Teller

    Christian polls comparing the behaviors of those who claim they are “born again” Christians with those who say they are not Christians generally find that the behaviors of the two groups are remarkably similar! Why do those professing to be born-again Christians differ little from self-proclaimed non-Christians? The answer can be found in Jesus’ use of parables.Scripture: Matthew 13:1-23

  • Faith in the God of the Future

    Hebrews 11:20-22 talks about three patriarchs dying in their faith. But these were not death-bed conversions (like the thief beside Jesus on the cross); they had an active faith throughout their lives. These three patriarchs, who serve as links between God’s promise to Abraham and God’s redemption through Moses, didn’t experience God’s promises fulfilled, but we see them dying with a living faith in God, his plans and promises.
