Description

At a meeting of the consistory of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, membership of Mr. and Mrs. S. M. de Bruin [not R. de Bruin?] was accepted. He had already been elected as elder at the recent congregational meeting. There was a considerable discussion on the way the renting of pews was conducted at the January 1 meeting. It was decided to finish the balcony of the sanctuary. The treasurer of the Holland Academy requested that the "deacons speedily see to it that the monies of this congregation" be given over to him. The request was approved.

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."
