Trinity Protestant Reformed Church

Classis East met in regular session on Wednesday, May 11, 2005 at the Trinity PRC, Hudsonville, Michigan. All the churches were represented by two delegates. Rev. J. Slopsema was the chair for this session.

The business of classis was routine; but, as the chairman reminded the delegates, routine does not mean that the items were not important.

Classical appointments were given to Covenant, Holland, and Hudsonville. Classis West requested pulpit supply for Edmonton for two Sundays in August, which classis readily agreed to.

In matters of finance, Covenant PRC requested adjustments of their 2005 subsidy and their 2006 subsidy to correlate with their being without a minister. Classis forwarded these requests to Synod 2005 for its approval. The expenses of classis amounted to $1,088.24.

Classis will meet next on Wednesday, September 14, 2005 at the Faith PRC.

Respectfully submitted,

Jon J. Huisken,

Stated Clerk
