      Fearing the loss of their identity, the Dutch congregants withdrew to form a new Dutch Reformed congregation. These break-away Dutch invited the Rev. Cornelius Van Santvoort, a minister from Staten Island, to visit. He arrived on May 3,1730, and effected a new congregation, installing two elders, two deacons and performing several baptisms. On the same day, a letter was addressed by the congregation to Reformed church authorities in Holland, requesting a permanent minister to serve their community. It would take several years for a suitable candidate to be found. Even then the congregation had to wait as their new minister to be had not yet completed his religious training. In the mean time the Rev. Van Santvoort traveled down from Staten Island several times a year to see to the spiritual needs of the congregation.
