Watch Our Progress!

Steeple Nite 3Good News! It's finally here! We are ready to start our Steeple restoration work!

 

Recently, we received the appropriate approvals from the City of Easton to move forward. As a result, Gordon Bennett Painting and team are scheduled to begin their work on July 27th.

 

What a blessing to have received over $90,000 so far toward the Steeple project! We are truly holding our breath until we reach our ultimate $125,000 goal... we are confident we'll get there with the help of our Community and Members!

We're Keeping A Video Record ~

              visit our YouTube logo to see ALL of our project videos!


As part of our continuing campaign, we are keeping a "video record" of the progress of this project! Here is the first video, a view of the "pre-restoration" Steeple taken by drone on July 18th, 2020. You can get a better look at some of the damages that need repair.


Please check in for additional videos as this exciting project proceeds!


Plans are to have the project completed by late August, just in time to also celebrate our Church's 275th Anniversary. We plan to have a celebratory 'Steeple Lighting' ceremony in September and we hope to see you there!


If you would like to contribute to this historic Restoration Project, please use the links provided above.


Please keep the Steeple Committee, and especially all of our Contractors in your prayers. It is a BIG JOB, in every way!

August 3rd, 2020 Video

Week1/Phase 1


 

 

This drone video, the second from the project, shows the work done as of Aug. 3rd. Our high flying painting technicians used a lift to reach over 130 ft. up to the top of our Steeple.

 

They power washed, scraped and sanded most of the Steeple. Then they painted the upper spire with primer, preparing it for its final coats of new paint.

Week 2/Phase 1


In this video, the third of the project, taken by drone on Aug. 13th, preparation and repair work are ongoing. As anyone who has ever worked on an older home knows, the more you look, the more you find that needs to be fixed! Our heroic painting technicians from Gordon Bennett Painting are taking special care of our Steeple. Some areas are primed and ready for painting while other areas still need scraping or repairs.

Week 3/Phase 1


This drone footage shows progress as we enter the fourth week of our project on Aug. 18th. Fresh paint is being applied to some areas, while other areas will require relocation of the lift before the crew can tend to them. Prep and repair continues as the painters encounter spots that need some extra TLC before painting. 


You can also clearly see the clock faces and that the 'clock works' have been removed for repair and refurbishment, another phase of the project!






August 24, 2020

Week 4/Phase1


This is a birds-eye view of the continued repair and painting of the outside of our Steeple. You can also catch sight of the start of refurbishing work on our steeple clock, from the inside.
