St. Paul's Lutheran Church can be found downtown in Sandy Hill. The church as we see it today was erected in 1887, replacing an earlier form. It is in the Gothic Revival style.
The church is more austere, but lovely inside. A lot of light gets into the interior.
This is another one of the places that felt the touch of architect W.E. Noffke, who has been a common theme this year for Doors Open. He oversaw renovations in the mid-twentieth century. From the front, facing down the length of the sanctuary, the glass wall separating the pews from the narthex is more recent.
The windows are less detailed than in other denominations, but I like them, and they really let in the light.
This angel carved into wood makes for a good lectern.
I was told that this was the original altarpiece in the sanctuary before the current one was put in. Because of the beauty of the work, the decision was made to keep it in the church. It stands off to the side at the front of the church.
This is the current front altarpiece. The church tends to decorate the sanctuary differently for various occasions, such as Pentecost Sunday, when I took this shot, but also Christmas and Easter. I will have to return here again for photoblog opportunities around that time.
