Ter gedagtenis aan 150 jaar van seën op ons kerk.
Aan God die eer.

en deur Hom bly alles in stand. Hy is die
hoof van die liggaam, van die kerk"

[In memory of 150 years of blessings on our church. Praise be to God. Col. 1 vs 17,18 "And He is before all things, and by Him all things exist. And He is the head of the body, the church."]
