Update: The church was purchased at the City tax auction in mid 2019, with plans to renovate it into a community arts center.
There is bad news to report at the old Grace Lutheran Church, whose later congregation had to abandon it due to costs associated with operating a massive masonry structure. The roof of the side porch has collapsed, and the plywood which I photographed back in October 2018 has fallen out of the lancet window. It is so sad to see this happening. See another view of the stained glass from a later post here. You can see one of the earliest pictures I took of the church here, when it was still occupied.
