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

  • Living Worship

    Samaritans worshiped on Mount Gerizim, as Moses commanded (Deut. 11-12) and where had had altars built. Jews knew that God had later commanded worship in Jerusalem, where he had Solomon build the Temple. This was the true place of worship. In a sense, the two temples themselves became idols for them. Both believed that the Messiah would come and justify their position. Into this argument walks Jesus; what will Messiah say? Scripture: Exodus 20:4-6; John 4:1-26

  • In God We Trust

    On our currency we find the reminder: “In God we trust.” But when our life is on the line or a catastrophe like the corona virus strikes, are we willing to trust in God? That’sreally what Psalm 46 is all about. Who is God? Where do we find our security, stability and serenity?Scripture: Psalm 46

  • The Pull of Home

    As we re-gather for corporate worship back in our church building, we are going to break into our regular sermon series to reflect on our return. We met the Sons of Korah in Psalms 42-43, as they made their way into exile in Babylon, already feeling the pull of home as they were forced to leave it. This Psalm reflects a similar longing for being in God’s House ⸺ a longing many of us echoed in the past months of the pandemic. What have we learned in “exile” that we can better “be the church” outside these walls?Scripture: Psalm 84
