A meeting of the Consistory of the First Reformed Church of Holland was held at the home of the pastor, Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte. Members present were elders Jonkers, Broek, Labots, and Appeldoorn and deacons Keppel, Wilterdink, and de Weerd. Van Raalte, as usual, opened with prayer. Jonkers requested the pastor to let them know ahead of time when he would be absent from the congregation "so that appropriate measures can be taken for a good reading sermon." Labots, Plugger, and Broek were appointed as readers of sermons during the pastor's absences. Van Raalte again served as the clerk.
