Byron Center PRC

Classis East met in regular session on Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at the Byron Center PRC. Each church was represented by two delegates; Rev. R. VanOverloop presided over this session.

This meeting of classis was short, but serious. Three churches requested the approval of classis for the increase of censure for one of its members. One consistory re quested approval for the erasure of a baptized member. Discussions regarding these cases were held in closed session.

Classis received requests for pulpit supply from Cornerstone, Holland, Hope, Trinity, and Wingham. A schedule was adopted for these churches. A reminder to the churches that help may be on the way was the presence at classis of our three senior seminarians who are now doing internships in local churches. The expenses of classis amounted to $33.00. Classis will meet next on Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at the Trinity PRC, Hudsonville, MI.

Respectfully submitted,

Jon J. Huisken, Stated Clerk
