Legacy of Light: Renewing our Sacred Space

Special Appeal and Repair Progress Update

Happy Wednesday friends. We are excited to continue sharing the progress being made with the Legacy of Light: Renewing our Sacred Space campaign.

Generous Contributions

There have been 19 gifts totaling $35,405 since beginning our special appeal. Please continue to pray for remarkable generosity and care in these contributions.

Repair Progress Updates

Significant progress has been made over the last week. Below you will see pictures highlighting the overall progress and updates to specific pieces of the inside of the sanctuary.

  • Successful Sample Window Test: A sample window was received and successfully test-fitted with one of the current stained glass window inserts. We now have the greenlight to proceed with ordering the 24 upper windows with an anticipated lead time of 4 weeks.
  • Corner Finishing: We have finished the corner of the sanctuary located behind the organ.
  • Monitor Reinstallation: Monday, March 18, members from our dedicated Trustee Workgroup reinstalled and tested the large monitor at the front of the sanctuary by the organ.
Next Steps

Stay tuned for further updates as we continue to progress with this restoration journey. Your ongoing support is invaluable as we work towards renewing our sacred space.

  • Exterior Repair Preparation: Our general contractor will continue to address exterior damaged areas in preparation for subsequent exterior work. This phase will commence once the replacement windows have been installed.
  • Patience During Waiting Period: We appreciate your patience during the waiting period for replacement windows. While progress may seem to slow during this time, we are diligently preparing for the next phases of restoration.

Together in Service,

Mike Schindler
Trustee Chair
