Episcopal Church turns 100 years old

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of its church building this weekend.

The church, which is at 424 E. Main St., stands out among the others downtown with the bright red doors which lead to its sanctuary and offer a vivid contrast to its exterior of gray brick.

When one passes through the doors to the sanctuary and then receiving room, they are greeted by an arched ceiling with a purple carpet running between two rows of wooden pews. Stained glass windows with depictions of Mary, Mother of God, and Jesus, the Shepherd, face each other on either side of the pews. Toward the front is the area for the pastor, the choir and the organist and over all them is another stained-glass portrayal of St. Paul keeping watch over his flock.
