HURON — The Congregational Church, located on Fifth Street and California Avenue Southwest, has spruced up the windows on the west side of the building, facing the Event Center, with colorful murals.
The windows were boarded up when the inside of the church was remodeled in 1963 and the congregation decided it was time for change.
Alan Greenfield said, “Twenty years ago or so it was brought up and then the ball was dropped and Dennis Meyer (a lifetime member of the church) was instrumental in resurrecting it and making it happen.”
The window murals were designed by Jason Bach of Alexandria, Va., who named the project, “Salvation History Murals,” and the project was finished in spring 2017.
The church is always looking to welcome new members.
“Come as you are,” church secretary Marie Skovlund, said to anyone looking to join the church. “This is the hidden gem of Huron; the pastel stained glass windows are beautiful, and the congregation is just as beautiful,” she added.
Congregational UCC members helping with the project include front row, from left, Stacey Hershman, Alan Greenfield, Karen Greenfield, Loretta Meyers and Dennis Meyers; and in back, Spencer Hershman, Jackson Greenfield, Shelby Hershman and Marie Skovlund.
