What Church Stained Glass Restoration Does For A Community

While it is true that Church stained glass restoration is an expensive undergoing, it is also so very important to the history of American churches of all denominations and more importantly breathes new life into congregations.  Furthermore, it brings such joy to parishioners. So for churches here in Dallas and around the country, stained glass restoration should be a very real consideration for small windows to large and from simple to intricate.

A Stained Glass Restoration Rich With History

A  very fantastic example of how wonderful stained glass restoration can be for a church and its body as a whole is clearly illustrated by the sanctuary restoration of Bethel A.M.E. Church located in Huntington in NY.  This lovely old church has the distinction of being Huntington, NY’s oldest African American church and that distinction carries with it deep historical significance both for the area and for the African American culture in the area.   The project cost right around $50,00 and took about two years but as the parishioners found out, it carried deep meaning, since they truly felt they were preserving more than just their windows but their culture too. At the same time, they ended up paying homage to those bygone parishioners that put so much into founding church and the original stained glass windows.

The Deterioration Of The Stained Glass Windows

As you can see from the pictures,  the stained glass windows in the sanctuary at  Bethel A.M.E. were very minimalistic but so lovely!   They also were incredibly true to the style of the era in which they were installed back in 1924.  However, over the years the condition of these once lovely stained glass windows had become severely deteriorated so,  in 2016, Rev Larry D Jennings made a decision to restore them from their broken down condition. He did this not only because the window really needed it but because he and his church body saw the historical, culture and artistic value of these relics and also thought it was a good way to respect the church members of the past who likely sacrifice for them to be installed.

Paying For The Church Stained Glass Restoration

 

Paying for stained glass restoration can be an expensive endeavor and accordingly, finding funds can be a challenge.  But as Bethel A.M. E found out–not impossible and well worth it. In their case, a town historian, Robert Hughes found grants from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation for $20,000, them the Sacred Sites program of the New York Landmarks Conservancy for $10,000; and finally The Gerry Charitable Trust for $5,000.  The remaining costs were covered by generous donations from the congregation itself and the results could not be more awe-inspiring.
