Restoring the Jesus Window for its 120th Birthday

 

We will be having the Jesus Window restored and repaired. The window will be removed in late March or early April and returned 4 to 6 weeks later. While the window is gone the storm window will keep out the weather and the interior will be covered with white paper. We have accepted a contract with O’Brien Stained Glass Co. out of Rollingstone, Minnesota.

They will remove the 3 panels of the window and transport them to their studio for restoration. The window will be completely disassembled and all broken glass will be repaired or replaced. Then the panels will be washed and mismatched glass will be replaced. The panels will be rebuilt with restoration lead and braced using box bracing method for stability. When window is reinstalled all glass panels will have open cell backer rod and silicone for expansion and ventilation. The cost to do the work is $19,500.

This window has a long history with our church. “The Door of the Fold” painting by Sybil C. Parker was the inspiration for this window. The window was designed in 1901. It was originally designed for our 2nd church building at 7th and Main. The window was a gift from the Epworth League and Junior Epworth League (the forerunner to UMYF). A complete history of the window is available at the church.

We are accepting donations to help with the cost of the restoration. If you would like to make a donation, mark your check or giving envelope ‘Stained Glass’. You may also stop by the church office to drop off a gift.
