Classis East met in regular session on April 6th at Southeast Church. The business was routine. There were no pressing problems for the churches. Each church was represented by two delegates. Rev. G. VanBaren presided at this session. Noteworthy was the fact that four elders were in attendance at classis for the first time and signed the Formula of Subscription.
In its business for the day, the Finance Committee, composed of Elders J. Kalsbeek and C. Kregel, reported and classis approved expenses of $363.40. Revs. Heys and C. Hanko were elected as church visitors, the reports of the Stated Clerk and the Classical Committee were heard. Covenant Church of Wyckoff, New Jersey requested permission to ask the churches in Classis East for collections to help them in their building project. Classis also extended to these brethren the privilege of approaching synod for the purpose of making a similar request to the churches of Classis West.
After the asking and answering of the questions of Article 41 of the Church Order and the closing remarks of the chairman, classis stood adjourned. Rev. J.A. Heys closed the meeting with prayer. Classis will meet next in July at Southwest Church.
