New Utrecht Reformed Church to reopen sanctuary December 16

New Utrecht Reformed Church
The New Utrecht Reformed Church Sanctuary building will be reopened on Sunday,
December 16, 2018 with a Worship Service at the special time of 3 p.m. All are welcome
to attend.

The landmark building, dating to 1828, has undergone stages to major restoration and
repair, including a new shake roof, a new barrel-vaulted interior ceiling and upgraded
electrical service. While more work needs to be done on the organ alcove, both the
congregation and community are now able to worship in this historic sacred space.
Please note that only street parking is available. After Service, there will be a time of
fellowship (with coffee and cake) in the Parish House next door.

As part of the Sanctuary reopening celebration, New Utrecht Reformed Church will be
hosting the annual Living Nativity on our front lawn, on Saturday, December 15, from 3
to 5 p.m.

Restoration news
As part of the ongoing restoration of the New Utrecht Church, the vaulted ceiling of the sanctuary was removed and completely replaced. Work on the damaged ceiling began in May 2013. Elaborate scaffolding was erected to allow the workmen access to the flat and barrel-vaulted areas of the ceiling. The new ceiling was completed in August 2015 and the scaffolding was removed. The installation and removal of the scaffolding caused extensive damage to the walls which must be repaired and painted. Additional funds are needed to complete repairs to the organ alcove and sanctuary walls. Donations to help with this work can be sent to:
