On August 24, we were lucky to have enough volunteers on hand to clean our sanctuary's stained-glass windows! This was a unique opportunity, because the painters' scaffolding and equipment was still on site, allowing us to get up close to the high areas. The windows were coated with decades worth of dust, grime, and sticky wax from all of those candles.
The volunteers also cleaned and reinstalled the ornamental gold pipes located on the front of our 1919 Möller pipe organ (at the front of the sanctuary), which led to some interesting discoveries.
Most of the plaster work is now complete, and we're painting all of the walls (and ceilings) in the sanctuary. Making progress! Look at the beautiful, smooth walls around the altar.
We are pleased to report that we're making progress on the plaster in the sanctuary. Much of the work above and around the altar is now complete. Our plasterer is turning his attention to the areas above the Luther and Luther Rose windows... meanwhile we're having some unsightly electrical fixtures replaced, and starting to think about paint colors.
