Description

Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte, elders H. Broek, Hekhuis, Wilterdink, Broersma, and Labot, and deacons, A. de Weerd, Wilterdink, Plugger, v/d Berg, and Keppel were present a this meeting of the Consistory of the First Reformed Church. Van Raalte asked the members how he would write on the spiritual condition of the congregation because the annual report of the denomination called for this information. The elders and deacons were somewhat pessimistic about the current state of affairs but V.R. felt that he could write many good things on this subject. The consistory members were still troubled about Doesburg's paper.

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
