A Community of Believers
First Reformed Church in Grandville, MI is a community of people on a journey together seeking to be faithful in following Jesus Christ.
We believe worship should be joy-filled, using a variety of music. We believe in intellectual integrity; rightly dividing the Word of Truth. We acknowledge that no one has “arrived,” but that we journey together, caring for each other, holding each other up in prayer, and walking together through times of joy and sorrow.
We like to laugh. We like to eat. We like to meet new people. There are teaching and learning opportunities for every age. Check out our website for information galore! We welcome the opportunity to meet you!

Today, we are reading the conclusion of the story of Peter and Cornelius which appears in the previous chapter. It’s a story that could be taken as encapsulating the grand theme of the Acts of the Apostles. In 11:15 the apostles are surprised that “the Holy Spirit fell on them [the Gentiles], just as the Spirit fell on us in the beginning.” Here’s a story of the gospel going forth to “all nations” (10:47), a mission that’s confirmed as coming from God by the gift of the Spirit. Can it be that God’s salvation, promised to Israel, has been extended even to the Gentiles? That is the astounding wonder at the heart of Acts. That boundary-breaking, door-opening Holy Spirit is the engine that drives all these events.
Growing Young Together
We have teamed up with Fuller Youth Institute’s Growing Young team, which provides us with resources & tools to gather vital insights about First’s effectiveness with the youth in the Grandville community.
Through gathering insights and feedback from the entire congregation, we are working to grow together, with all generations represented, in Christ’s family.
This is an exciting time at First Reformed Church as we grow intergenerationally.
