Overture from Delaware Reformed Church – this overture is on our agenda for consideration.
Covenant Shares – Consistories are also encouraged to look at the website for the RCA’s proposed new funding model, called Covenant Shares. Tom Smith is on the committee that is developing the proposal and will discuss it further at our meeting.
Proposed Bylaw Revisions – amendments to the Classis bylaws are proposed, primarily in response to two motions from last year’s meeting: process for selecting our elder delegates to General Synod (see Article XI.B.1-2), and involving deacons in Classis activity (see Article XII.A.7). There are also some corrections & clarifications proposed.
Proposed Budget for 2019 – the file includes a 2018 financial report (first three columns), and the proposed budget for 2019 (final column).
Appeal to Elders – Elders are a valued part of the work of Dakota Classis! Please read this letter from our President, Duane Wolbrink, and prayerfully consider how you can serve.
