At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, new members were received including William and Peter Moerdyk. [Apparently they were students in the academy at this time; they became key leaders in the RCA during their ministry.] It was reported that the new well would cost $28.50. It was ordered that the sermon preached by the pastor at the classical meeting in Grand Rapids be printed and 175 copies ordered for the congregation.
