Classis Michigan of the United Reformed Churches

3/10/2021

Congregations of Classis Michigan,

Classis Michigan met for its 58th meeting on Tuesday, March 9, 2021. Given the brevity of the provisional agenda, the interim committee arranged for an evening meeting of classis. The body met for deliberations in the facilities of Bethel United Reformed Church in Jenison MI. In the opening devotions the chairman pro-tem, Rev. Jason Tuinstra, directed the attention of the delegates to the Person and work of Christ as revealed in Revelation 5 as the focus and hope of the church militant.

Rev. Eric Van Der Molen, minister of Bethany United Reformed Church in Wyoming, served the body ably as chairman. Rev. Doug Barnes, minister of Grace United Reformed Church, assisted as vice-chairman.

The matters of receiving numerous reports from classical functionaries and committees made up the majority of the agenda. In addition, routine reports were presented from three churches regarding the organic life of their respective congregations.

One difficult matter classis dealt with was the recent submission of a resignation of the pastor of Covenant URC – Kalamazoo, Rev. Philip Stoffregen. The delegates of classis sought to give pastoral and biblical advice consistent with our church order on how this particular consistory should proceed.

Before adjourning, classis set the date of its next meeting for October 12, 2021, D.V., with Covenant URC in Kalamazoo serving as Interim Committee and host church.

Respectfully Submitted,
Rev. G. Lubbers
Clerk of Classis Michigan
