Church Pews are Back!

Excitement is in the air in Serbin, Texas!! The Trustees worked hard last night to get all the pews back in the church. The cushions will not be put back on the pews yet as they need some cleaning after sitting up for so long.

Updated Church Photos

From the outside of the church, you can see a little more change. A wall was put up in the front of the church along the sidewalk and steps. Last week, rails were installed along the steps and the wall.

You can see from the picture of the inside of the church that we hold our weekly Sunday Worship Services sitting on chairs rather than the pews. The newly restored pews should begin making their way back in the church in the coming days a little at a time.

The air conditioner vents were cleaned out this week so that the pews could be brought back in.

Pouring concrete for the entrance

Below, you can see some photos from when the concrete was poured for the new entrance to the church. As you can tell, new blog posts have come few and far between. The blog is winding down along with the completion of the restoration project. We'll keep it online, though, for historical reasons, and to update it with any new and interesting things associated with the restoration!

Finishing Touches!

The final touches are being put on the church to prepare for Sunday Morning Worship Services. All the dust if being cleaned off the fixtures and walls. The walls are being painted upstairs. Jack Wiederhold spent the day on Thursday assembling his pipe organ in the church for use until our organ is ready. Our organ is projected to be ready at the early part of next year.

Wrapping it up!

No more Fans! We are scheduled to be back in the church this coming Sunday the 6th. Pews will be moved in upstairs, but chairs will still be temporarily used downstairs. The grout on the floor needs to cure for 28 days from the time it was completed before the sealant can be applied to the floor. Once the sealant is applied, some caulking and final touches will be done. After that is complete, the pews can be moved back in on the lower level as well.

The new stone floor can be seen from various views. The center aisle is laid with bigger, more rectangular squares, while the sides contrast with smaller stones in a variety of shapes and sizes. Notice the nice designs around the poles. More work will be done around the poles also, once the sealant is applied.

Carpet has been ordered for the altar steps and the stair landings.

Everything is coming back together nicely.

A lot more progress was made today on the stone floor, as you can see in the photos!
