On Monday, August 18, 2014 at 7:30 a.m., a large flatbed truck pulled into the parking lot of New Utrecht Reformed Church, delivering 17 "glulams" - glued laminated timber beams.  These heavy curved beams will form the new barrel vaulted structure in the New Utrecht Reformed Church Sanctuary building, built in 1828.
 
The Sanctuary building has been closed for repair since 2003, when the structural engineers' existing conditions report deemed the building unstable. (The congregation holds its services in the Parish House building, adjacent to the Sanctuary.)  Since then, six roof trusses have been steel reinforced and a new roof installed.
 
The next construction phase is centered on major interior repair.  After installation of two levels of interior scaffolding, the entire Sanctuary ceiling has been removed.  The roof rafters are visible.  The next step is to reconstruct the ceiling using the 17 glulams for the vaulted portion.
 
Please keep looking at this website for photos of progress.  The vision is to reopen the Sanctuary by year-end 2014.  The result will be a reopening of the building, not a restoration.  The building will be open but will not be finished.
 
The congregation of New Utrecht Reformed Church dates back to its founding in 1677 - an amazing fact in our changing world.

Photos of the glulams are at the link above.
