Pre-Classis Seminar on Classis Renewal

Presenter: Rev. Al Postma

This pre-classis worship will explore Classis from multiple angles. We’ll talk about what classis is, what purpose/role it serves, some of the challenges and opportunities that classes are experiencing all around the US & Canada, the relationship between classis and congregational health, and practical ways to live together as a church community. This workshop will have a high level of participation, with the goal of using our time to also gather experience and insight from delegates to inform Classis Like Superior’s renewal process. Please invite those in your congregation to attend who have a passion for working better together with other churches in your classis.

As You Prepare:

  1. Why is it important for congregations to be in community with other congregations?
  2. How might a healthy classis support the health of congregations?
