The Classical Committee of Classis, with the previous approval of Classis West, has rescheduled the regular meeting of Classis West from September 4 to October 9 in order to avoid having two Classis meetings this Fall. This will allow time for CandidateErik Guichelaar to consider and answer his calls and then prepare to be examined by Classis West, Lord willing.
Classis West currently consists of 15 congregations and a total of 2,934 members (baptized and communicant). Classis West is a broader assembly of the PRC and meets two (2) times per year: usually the first Wednesday of March and September but the actual dates are determined by the March Classis each year. The Classis is made up of two (2) delegates from each church, usually the pastor and an elder.
The Lynden WA PRC hosted the regular meeting of Classis West on March 6, with a special conference on the 450th anniversary of the Heidelberg Catechism held on Tuesday, March 5. For a report of this regular meeting, including delegates to Synod 2013, click on the Stated Clerk's report (pdf).
