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.)

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
The congregation of New Utrecht Reformed
Church dates back to its founding in 1677 -
