Church windows to be removed

McALESTER — People driving down Carl Albert Parkway on Thursday and Friday may get a new view of some old windows.

On Thursday the large, 90-year-old stained glass windows at the First Methodist Church building on Carl Albert Parkway will be removed and put into storage according Dr. Charles Neff, pastor of the church.

The congregation of the church recently sold the 1924 church building to move to a new location. Now, the large windows which have been part of the building for almost 90 years are being removed a put into storage.

“They will be repaired,” Neff said.

“The wood will be replaced with steel and we will store them to put into our new church building which should be built in about five years.”

Neff said an Oklahoma company will remove the four large windows facing Third Street and five interior windows in the sanctuary on Thursday and Friday, weather permitting.

He said the windows will be left with a clear glass until the new owners decide what they want to do.
