After several years of work, the very necessary repair of our historic stained glass windows is complete. Our volunteers did most of the work, but we hired assistance for the large and high Leroy Street windows this year. The wood frames have been scraped, caulked, repaired and painted. For most of the windows, we opted to replace the plexiglass coverings which had aged with new lexan coverings. All of the repaired windows have been ventilated to reduce the heat on the leaded glass windows. The windows are now better protected and the stained glass windows are more visible through the new coverings. We sincerely appreciate the volunteer work as well as the funds supplied from our members to perform the work. We hope to have future generations enjoy our historic stained glass windows!
As we faithfully consider our financial pledges each year, we also explore new ways we are called to share our time and talents in the ministry of our church each year. This year, we divided the Time/Talent Fair into two Sundays. The first Sunday enabled each committee to explain their programs to our members as we each sought meaningful ways to serve. The second Sunday enabled each member to sign up to serve in various ways. Below are some pictures showing our Time/Talent Fair this year when the various committees explained their needs and hopes.
