Church furnishings including the old organ console have been removed, and scaffolding has gone up all around the Historic Church. The triptych paintings above the altar have been put in safekeeping pending their restoration. SpawGlass, our contractor, will number all the pews before removing them so they go back to their proper places at the end of construction. The memorial wall plaques will be removed, and other critical components will be protected in place. The windows will be completely covered for protection until some are restored. In Grace Chapel and its vestibules, the furnishings have been taken out, and the worn red carpet is gone. The first day of demolition revealed historic tile under the old carpet at the south double doors!
