WELCOME TO CLASSIS CHATHAM
Classis Chatham is a family of Christian Reformed Churches and Ministries along highways 401 and 402 from Windsor to Woodstock to Sarnia in Ontario, Canada.
"To catalyze and encourage a movement of CRC churches that proactively advance
the great commission in Southwestern Ontario."
Classis Chatham focuses their classis meetings around four lenses. These lenses help us to discern what we as members of a classis are called to do. They are:
1. To be a spiritually discerning community
2. To be supportive and accountable to one another
3. To share in some ministries
4. To participate in and support the work of our denomination
Part of what it means to be a spiritually discerning community is to share stories of who we are and what God is doing among us. Classis Chatham has started sharing these stories focussed around five values that our churches have. We want to share stories about how we are working toward prayerful dependence on God, being places of authentic community, being disciples who in turn make other disciples, developing and equipping leadership in our churches, and how we are strengthening our covenantal relationships with our sister churches and our denomination.
