Faith Protestant Reformed Church
Classis East met in regular session on Wednesday, September 14, 2005 at the Faith PRC. All the churches were represented by two delegates. Rev. R. Van Overloop was the chairman for this session.
The business of classis was, with one exception, routine. Classical appointments were given to Covenant and Holland. Pulpit supply was also granted for the Pittsburgh mission and for Edmonton.
The exception in the routine business of the day was a consideration of a request to increase censure to the second step for a member of a local congregation. Once the details of the case were heard, classis advised the consistory to proceed to the second step with this member.
Reports were heard from the Stated Clerk and the Classical Committee. Expenses of classis amounted to $1,037.43. Classis will meet next on January 11, 2006 at the Hope PRC.
