Stained Glass Window Restoration

Protective glass and better ventilation for our priceless Tiffany and other stained glass windows was installed May 8 – 10, 2017 on the north (Washington Street) side of the church. Lamb Studios’ craftsmen worked diligently Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to complete this project, which was supported by last August’s Building Fund party.

The narthex was the site of the work table, stencil-making, glass cutting, taping and staging. Scaffolding was erected above the front steps, and craftsmen Jay and Joseph executed the project with great care and expertise.

Many thanks to all who supported last August’s fundraiser, and who continue to support Bethesda’s Capital Campaign. And thanks be to God for the gift of craftsmanship and artistry that has enhanced our worship here for nearly two centuries.
