All through the past summer and fall, anytime a person went past Lincoln Christian Church, at the corner of Pulaski and McLean streets, there were signs of people working on the exterior of the building.

The work done outside was the prelude to what is now being done inside. The church is in the process of completing a three-phase project that dealt with leaking roofs and water-damaged interiors in the original portion of the church.

The plaster around the stained-glass windows had chipped, peeled and
cracked. If you look closely, you can see where some of the panels of glass
have bowed and pieces of glass have cracked.

All the yellow-colored walls have been repaired and had a new plaster mesh


Scaffolding at the front of the sanctuary is tricky due to the height of
the ceilings and steps.

Pews have been unbolted, moved to the center of the room and covered to make room around the walls to work.

Restoration work is time-consuming and tedious but necessary in order to
leave a heritage for the next generation.
