As Table 1 illustrates, the number of Christian Reformed persons in the Grand Rapids area has increased slowly. From 1970 to 1975 we see an increase of 5%, a small decline between 1975 and 1980, a 3.5% increase from 1980 to 1985, and about a 2% increase from 1985 to 1990. Overall growth for the two decades is roughly 10%.
