Fuller Avenue Christian Reformed Church

Who We Are

Worship. Discipleship. Community. Service

Here at Fuller, we believe that God has an amazing plan for each of us and we are excited to join together as we live into His love. Just by way of introduction, Fuller is a church that is deeply committed to loving God and loving our neighbors. We value gathering together for worship, we encourage each other in discipleship, we celebrate together in community, and we serve each other and our neighbors with the love of Jesus.

If this sounds like a community you might enjoy, I invite you to join us for worship next Sunday morning at 10:00 AM. We believe that God is doing a new thing here in Grand Rapids and we would love to have you join us.

What to Expect

What are services like?
In a word, our worship is passionate. We use traditional elements in relevant ways as we explore how to best worship God. We typically begin with singing a few songs of praise, we move on to a time where we recognize God's redemptive work in our lives, we have an uplifting/challenging message from one of our Pastors, and we leave with a challenge to live out in our upcoming weeks. In our worship we strive to include all ages and abilities. We love to include our children. We hope you join us soon.

What is the community like?
We are a seasoned church with deep roots. Some might call us older, but we leverage that experience to provide depth and spiritual maturity. We are seeing more young families join us as we work in our neighborhood, expand our children's ministries, and connect with new members. Ultimately, we are a welcoming, friendly, and growing community of faith - we'd love to meet you and welcome you in person.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Quite simply, we'd love to have you join us. Each of us are at a different stage of our journey. We are committed to making room for you to belong even if you don't believe. Don't get us wrong - we won't be bashful about Jesus. But we are a place where questions are welcome and safety is prized. Join us and give us a try.
