The First Netherlands Reformed Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was begun by several dozen Dutch immigrants dissatisfied with the Reformed and Christian Reformed congregations with which they had affiliated. The group called [[Cornelius Kloppenburg|Rev. Cornelius Kloppenburg]] of OudVosmeer, the Netherlands, who came in August 1870. After failing to convince the believers to affiliate with the least objectionable local church, Kloppenburg oversaw formal organization on October 30, 1870. The church chose the name Christian Reformed Congregation of Grand Rapids.
