At this Consistory meeting of the First Reformed Church, the members prepared a double slate for nomination to Consistory. The names of T. Keppel, A. Krabshuis, Kroes, and J. van de Luijster would be presented to the congregation for the two elders who were to be elected. Since three deacons were to be elected, all nominees of the congregation would be presented: D. te Roller, R. Schilleman, P. de Vries, Kroes, van de Liujster, and J. van Dijk. A third deacon would be voted in if Keppel were elected to the position of elder and vacate his deacon's position. Other matters also came before the Consistory. Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided at the meeting and wrote up the minutes.
