On September 25th, Classis Ontario East will convene in Vineland. This is a regional gathering of delegates from our sister churches. We will begin at 9:00am in our current facilities at 3327 Menno Street, Vineland, ON and we hope to have a good time of discussion, fellowship, and mutual encouragement.
Generally speaking, Classis meets together twice per year to discuss matters of mutual interest in the churches and to provide advice to consistories as they carry out their callings to serve the people of God in their community. This is an important part of maintaining and promoting accountability among our churches.
The public is welcome to attend! At a typical classis meeting, the delegates (two from every church in the classis) will hear updates from our mission activities, debate matters of common interest that arise in an overture, and provide advice.
