Grace Protestant Reformed Church

Classis East met in regular session on Wednesday, Sep­tember 12, 2012 at the Grace PRC. Each church was represented by two delegates. Rev. K. Koole was the chairman for this session.

The business of classis was routine. The delegates were on their way home by 10 a.m. Classis approved classical ap­pointments for Faith PRC for the evening services and special services between October, 2012 and January, 2013. Rev. H. Bleyenberg was elected to serve a one-year term on the Classi­cal Committee, replacing Rev. A. Lanning who will be leaving to take up his work as minister-on-loan in Singapore.

Classis had no expenses for this session, an event ascribed by the committee to the fiscal diligence of its chairman, Rev. C. Haak.

The chairman expressed special words of encouragement to Rev. A. Lanning, who will soon be serving as minister-on-loan in Singapore.

Classis will meet next on Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at the First PRC, Grand Rapids.

Respectfully submitted,

Jon J. Huisken, Stated Clerk
