Newfield Construction was hired to reconstruct this burned sanctuary space to its original quality and splendor. An addition incorporating classrooms, fellowship, and meeting space was also included as part of this project.
The stained glass altar window was successfully rebuilt from photographs and glass bits. The chancel was lengthened with careful attention paid to reconstructing and replicating the original ceramic floor tiles, and other thoroughly researched restorations and alterations were made. The children’s chapel was completely redesigned to house the church’s new education wing. The St. John’s auditorium, all but destroyed, was expanded and completely rebuilt with a commercial-grade kitchen. Today it is the church’s social center and houses essential community meetings and events. The choir rooms, which had made their home on the second floor of the Parish House, were relocated to the basement, where they now coexist with expanded facilities for the parish’s young adults. And finally, a new parking lot was carved out of a lawn area behind the church.
