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!

The God who has done these things to Job has spoken out of a whirlwind. That whirlwind becomes a kind of metaphor for the God that we meet in the Book of Job. No simple answers are given. God’s final gifts to Job are not complete restoration—how could Job’s lost children be restored? Yet the final gifts of God are a kind of vindication for Job. Evidently, the great God is not threatened by Job’s rants and raves, his complaints and angry accusations. Job says, at the end, that he “repents,” which doesn’t really mean that Job regrets all that he said in the midst of his pain. Rather, it indicates that now Job has come to a new understanding of the awesome God of the whirlwind. He may not have the answers he wanted, but now Job has the very presence of God.
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.
What gifts do you have? At First, there is a place for you to use those gifts and passions to further God’s Kingdom. In each of our ministries, you’ll have an opportunity to bless others and be blessed.
