Excerpt from A Discourse: Delivered at the Celebration of the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the Reformed Prot; Dutch Church of Bergen, in New Jersey, on Sabbath Morning, December 2nd, A. D. 1860This Church, having been extensively repaired and elegantly refitted, and for about two months closed, was reopened for public worship on Sabbath, the 2d day of December, A.D., 1860. On this occasion the congregation celebrated their Two Hundredth Anniversary. The large edifice, which can comfortably seat eleven hundred persons, was filled with worshipers. The Morning Exercises were opened with a Voluntary on the organ, followed by an appropriate Anthem. The Pastor of the Church then invoked the presence of the Master of the house, and the Scriptures were read by the Rev. R.D. Van Kleeck, of Jersey City. The assembly joined in singing a Hymn specially adapted and prepared for the occasion. The Sermon was delivered by the Pastor.After the singing of a Hymn by the Sabbath school of the Church, numbering over two hundred and sixty children, the Rev. Thomas DE Witt, D.D., addressed the large assembly, making most happy allusions to the venerable men who for nearly the whole of the first century of the existence of this Church, supplied her with the ordinances of Gods house. He then paid most deserved and beautiful tributes to the memory of the two deceased Pastors of the Church, and pointed the assembly to some of the marked features of her history; after which the Doxology was sung, and the people were dismissed with the Benediction.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
