In the local news column in De Hollander it was reported that a meeting was held in the Holland Academy to establish guidelines for the formation of a second church, "mainly for American, High German and other folk understanding English, for whom the Rev. Mr. Phelps preaches almost every Sunday afternoon." At the head of the subscription for raising money for a building was Rev. Albertus Van Raalte who donated four building lots.

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."
