On July 13, 1750, in the house of John Finney, the new Society held its first meeting. Nathaniel Swift, Jonathan Brownson, and Benjamin Sackett were elected a Society's Committee to proceed with the organization of the church, while Jonathan Sackett and Jeremiah Fuller were appointed a committee to supply the church with preaching."
