Classis East met in regular session on May 12, 1982 at our Holland Church. Each church, with the exception of Kalamazoo, was represented by two delegates. Rev. C. Haak chaired this session of Classis.
The business was routine with two exceptions: 1) a consistory requested approval for the erasure of a baptized member and 2) the report of the church visitors was received. The church visitors reported that all was well in the churches. Note was made that 29 years ago (1953) there were strange voices being heard in the churches just as there had been 29 years before that (1924). Twenty-nine years since 1953 one does not find that occurring. We give God thanks for that fact.
Classis adjourned at an early hour. The next meeting of Classis East will be held on September 8th at our Hope Church.
