Staten Island in Richmond County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Founding of the Dutch Church
In 1665, a small group of the first Dutch settlers to come to the shores of this island banded together for the worship of Almighty God. Through three centuries faithful men and women have continued this ministry to the community, the nation, and the world.
Therefore on this 2nd day of May 1965, we do humbly and gratefully commemorate the tercentenary of the founding of this congregation.
“Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.”
