The First Reformed Church congregation could leave the log church and enjoy worship in the new Pillar Church. Rev. Albertus Van Raalte, pastor, preached on Psalm 84, verses two and three. In the afternoon, he preached on the third petition of the Lord's prayer, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In the evening, Rev. John Van Vleck preached in English. Four young people made profession of faith, one of whom was baptized. The reporter said that the congregation had a great feast day.

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."
