The Classis of the Federation of Protestant Reformed Churches in the Philippines met this past Wednesday, February 25 in the building of the Berean PRC. By God’s grace and blessing, the work of the Classis went well.
Rev. Kleyn (who served as president of the previous classis) opened the meeting by leading the classis in devotions and a meditation on Psalm 87:2. Rev. Flores, by rotation, then chaired the meeting.
In addition to receiving reports from the clerk and treasurer and approving their work, the Classis received and treated reports from its two standing committees. The main content of these reports was that the committees presented constitutions for their respective duties - i.e., constitutions for Contact Committee, Finance Committee, Seminary Student Training, etc. The Classis adopted these constitutions.
The Classis also treated and approved the procedure that is to be used when churches request membership in the PRCP. The classis then gave its approval to one of the standing committees to implement this procedure in relation to the request of Maranatha PRC in Valenzuela to join the federation.
