Servan'ts Community was organized in 1981.

HistoryEdit

Servant's Community Reformed Church began with 12 people gathering weekly for prayer, Bible study, and informal worship. The first meetings took place in homes. On January 20, 1980, the group began meeting in a vacant church building in the heart of the Grand Rapids west side.

On January 21, 1981 Servant's Community was officially organized by the North Grand Rapids Classis of the Reformed Church in America. Leaders were chosen. Assignments were accepted. 23 adults and 9 children stood on an exciting new frontier.

From those earliest days, Servant's has existed for the sake of our Westown neighborhood. We are a church of and for our community that longs to make the hope we have experienced a little more present in our city and our world.

There have been a lot of changes over these years, both for Servant's and Grand Rapid's Westside, but some things never change. One of those things for Servant's is the belief that Jesus' call to love our neighbors starts in the neighborhoods we find ourselves in. First and foremost we long to see reconciliation, justice and peace in our own lives and in our community.
