This Day in History: 1918-03-17
The congregation of the Ramapo Reformed Church met to consider selection one of the candidates who have been preaching for the past few weeks.
The group was divided between two candidates but finally selected the Rev. A. Vanema, President of Hope College, Michigan. The Rev. Vanema is known locally because he was Pastor of a Church in Passaic for a number of years. He will begin this summer after the College closes. He is a powerful preacher and expected to build up the Church.
