Bauer Christian Reformed Church, located right between the triangle of Allendale, Jenison and Hudsonville communities, is a church of about 370 members. Bauer CRC was organized in June of 1902. The original building was erected in 1910 and enlarged in 1948 and 1956. A brand new facility was built in June 2002 to better serve our growing congregation in one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Michigan.
The church is a wonderful blend of old and new. While the congregation is growing it still maintains a family atmosphere and provides a wonderful place for strangers to become friends and friends to become family in Jesus Christ. Our worship services blend a variety of musical styles, both traditional and contemporary, and our teaching seeks to apply the timeless truths of God’s Word with real time issues of modern living. Our congregation too is a mixture of people from all ages of life. In the fast-paced life of our modern culture, Bauer is a wonderful place to call your spiritual home.
Our Core Values
We have four core values that guide us. These values describe the culture we desire to create at Bauer:
- Celebrate through Worship
- Care through Fellowship
- Cultivate through Education
- Communicate through Witness
Our Vision Statement
We are a body of believers committed to knowing, glorifying and serving God. We do this through worship, fellowship and member care, education and outreach. This enables us to become disciples of Jesus Christ, to be joined in the community of His Church and to be trained to love and serve others.
We have two worship services each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. We seek to worship God through prayer, music, and the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. Praise teams lead the congregation in singing at two morning services a month. We have assistive listening devices available for the hearing impaired. Nursery care is available for both services for infants and toddlers.
