Samuel Skelton, who arrived in North America just seven days ago, is elected the first pastor of Salem, Massachusetts. The church covenant created by Skelton will make his congregation the first non-separating congregational Puritan Church in New England.

In 1630 Samuel Skelton will discontinue use of the Book of Common Prayer and his church will become the Second Independent Congregational Church in New England. This and other work done by Skelton will allow the Puritans and Pilgrims to unite into a single colony.
