What to Expect

If you are visiting LaGrave for the first time, you will be warmly greeted at the door. Our greeters can help you find your way. You can also visit the Welcome Center in the entrance area, where you can get a Welcome Packet with plenty of information about LaGrave. The Welcome Center staff can also answer any questions you may have. 

What to Wear

While most members dress formally, we welcome people for who they are, not what they wear.

Nurseries & Children's Worship

LaGrave offers nursery care for infants through toddlers and children’s worship for children ages 4 through second grade. Children are checked in and out of their classrooms using a computer check-in and paging program. For more information, please visit Children & Youth.

People with Disabilities

We have a number of handicapped parking spaces in the lot to the west of the church. Our premises are wheelchair accessible, except for our north entrance. We have an elevator for easy access to the upper and lower floors of our building.  Our sanctuary also has a loop system for hearing aid users. In addition, large print bulletins, Bibles and Psalter Hymnals are available, as is a Braille Psalter Hymnal.

Membership

If you are looking for a church that combines a deep commitment to the historic, Reformed version of the Christian faith and a passionate desire to minister to both its members and its community with a relevant Gospel, we encourage you to give LaGrave Avenue Christian Reformed Church your prayerful consideration. There is a place for you here and many opportunities to serve and to be served.

We are a downtown church whose membership comes from all over the West Michigan region. As with other downtown churches, we are a diverse group in terms of age, occupation, marital status, and lifestyles. As a large church, we can provide exciting opportunities for active involvement in multiple ministries.

We are a Christian Reformed Church, inheritors of a wonderful doctrinal tradition. Believing that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, our only infallible rule for faith and life, we are committed to "reforming" ourselves according to the Bible. Accordingly, we are a progressive church, strongly committed to moving ahead with God's mission to the world, and a traditional church, holding firmly to Biblical truth as summarized in the historic Reformed creeds.

Finally we are a down-to-earth church. We are committed to being real people who enjoy real life and who cry real tears. We are focused on a living Savior, who provides genuine solutions to the deep needs of a hurting world. And we are committed to need-meeting ministry in his name.

We invite you to join us in seeking Christ and serving him here at LaGrave Avenue Christian Reformed Church. For information on how you can become a part of LaGrave, call one of our pastors through the church office at (616) 454-7204.
