MET IN SESSION, JULY 12, 1950, AT GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. This meeting of Classis was held in Grand Rapids in the parlors of the First Church. Rev. H. De Wolf calls the meeting to order, leads the devotional exercises and presides at this session of Classis.

We Go To Church (continued)

You Pray Before Service I have seen people come to church, hurry to the pews, tumble into a vacant place and then sit and look around as if they had entered some kind of museum. Some enter the church as if it were a sales pavilion. Judging by the way some examine the suits and dresses and hats of the others one would think they mistook the church for a style shop.

The Change at the Last Moment

Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. I Cor. 15:51, 52
