Fifth Church is part of the Great Lakes City Classis of the Reformed Church in America (RCA). The word “classis” is Latin in origin and refers to a grouping of people or a fleet of ships. The Great Lakes City Classis (GLCC) is comprised of the RCA churches in Michigan from Hudsonville to Detroit and all of the RCA churches in Ohio and Kentucky. Together we’re a group of 31 churches with about 6500 members.
After the RCA General Synod meeting in October of 2021, the GLCC met to clarify our stance on human sexuality and to reiterate our commitment to mission, specifically to church planting, church rebirth, and leadership development. To make this content available to all the members of our churches, the GLCC produced a video summary of our conversation. Click HERE to watch the video. The Fifth family will recognize the background as the video was filmed in our lobby!
