Trinity’s Windows


Following the worship service on Sunday, June 12, 2022, the trustees will provide a Show and Tell to discuss the restoration of two more stained glass vent windows along the north aisle of the sanctuary. We will SHOW the results of the restoration of the first two vent windows and TELL why we want to continue with the restoration of two more vent windows. As an added bonus, you will be able to touch and hold a beautiful piece of Trinity’s history in your hands! Several small pieces of the original 1917 opalescent glass from broken panes have been saved and preserved by our Facilities Manager and will be available for your inspection.

The trustees have received a $10,000 grant from the Idaho Heritage Trusts to help with the restoration of two more vent windows along the north aisle of the sanctuary. This is about one-third of the cost of the project. The project includes $13,000 for window restoration, $14,000 for three crates of custom glass, $1,000 for shipping and $3,000 for a contingency. The custom glass is needed because we are unable to purchase additional replacement glass that matches the beautiful colors and textures of the original glass installed our windows.

While we have received contributions from a few church members to help kick-start our fund raising, we need your support to make this project a reality. Please plan to join us and learn about the conservation and preservation of our beautiful windows.

Masonry and Roofing Assessment Report

The trustees are charged with taking care of our 96 year old church.  The plaster has fallen off the ceiling in several places.  As a result, we have had several professionals in the care and restoration of historic structures visit with us.  They have advised us on what needs to be done to preserve our church.  Click here for the reports.

In a nutshell, the windows, stonework and roofs are all in need of serious restoration work.  The cost will be hundreds of thousands of dollars.  We do not have the capital to fund these projects.  The money we receive in the offering just covers our monthly expenses. The Museum of Idaho has expressed interest in purchasing and restoring our beloved building. We need to explore this option along with discussing the future of Methodism in Idaho Falls with St. Paul’s.
