Van Raalte presided and also served as clerk, several persons made confession of faith and were admitted to the Lord's table and membership statements were received from people who came front Clymer, New York, Grand Haven, and Arnhem, the Netherlands. During the absence of the pastor, Elder Labots would conduct the catechism classes and elderly persons can receive religious instruction from elders Labots or Keppel on Monday morning at 8 a.m..
