The Big Picture

Bunde Christian Reformed Church (bundecrc.org) is a faithful congregation of 225 seeking a full-time Pastor who will preach the Word of God, graciously shepherd the congregation, and provide godly leadership.

The Church

We at Bunde CRC are a loving, caring, and supportive congregation. We pull together when a member of our congregation is in need. We have tremendous loyalty to our members and like to laugh and have fun with each other. We enjoy celebrative worship and are exuberant in singing and praising our God. We value sound and effective Biblical preaching. We are grounded in our faith and do not waiver on our core beliefs. You can see this in our members through the generations of families in our congregation. We are very supportive of our Pastor and follow his leadership well. We also have a desire to strengthen our spiritual life through prayer and small groups. Our challenge is to encourage and involve all members to develop and use their gifts. Our congregation had become weary and with renewed passion we look forward to having a new pastor come along side us to empower us to move ahead positively. Bunde truly desires to be used by God in our community to bring others into a saving relationship with Him. By God’s grace, help, and guidance we will become the church He wants us to be.
