A Busy Week at Synod 2012

Following the Synodical Service of Prayer and Praise, Synod 2012 delegates were invited to nearby Meadowlands Fellowship Christian Reformed Church for a community-wide festival of song led by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship.

On Monday morning, delegates of the CRC’s annual leadership meeting will gather again in plenary session. After opening worship, delegates will go into executive session at 10 a.m. (Executive session is not webcast and is open only to delegates and advisors, due to confidential matters.)

In executive session, delegates will receive a report from the denomination’s judicial code committee about a conflict between the Maranatha CRC in Belleville, Ontario, and Classis Quinte.

Following that, delegates will start taking up reports from advisory committees as they become available.

Monday will include a presentation by the CRC’s Canadian Ministries. In the evening, Synod 2012 will interview Dr. Michael Le Roy, president-elect of Calvin College, and Dr. Michael Goheen, appointed as a professor at Calvin Theological Seminary.

On the synod schedule for the remainder of the week:

  • Greetings from fraternal delegates, Tuesday at 11 a.m.
  • Discussion of the Belhar Confession, Tuesday at 7 p.m.
  • Discussion of the Creation Stewardship report, Wednesday at 7 p.m.
