Stained Glass Windows at Big Bethel Baptist Church in McKenney, VA

     In 2002, Laws Stained Glass Studios installed (14) hand-stained glass windows at Big Bethel Baptist Church in McKenney, VA.  The six main sanctuary windows (size 41" wide x 115" high ) contained a floating scene of the "Life of Christ" and a memorial plate.  Two other windows (size 35" wide x 80" high ) and two (size 35" wide x 55" high) have a 12" round Biblical scene and memorial plate, and another two windows (size 24" wide x 78" high) have a 10" round Biblical scene and a memorial plate.  Two small windows (size 32" wide x 38" high) do not have a Biblical scene, but do have memorial plates.
     Laws Stained Glass Studios removed the existing wood sashes and installed the windows into the existing wood frame.  On the interior, the hand-stained glass window was set and on the exterior 1/4" Lucite SAR (extra mar-resistant) acrylic was installed as the protective covering.  The acrylic was held in place with (2) rows of 1/2" x 1/2" white aluminum stop.
     In 2003, the church ordered two more windows (size 36" wide x 54" high).  These windows contained a 12" round Biblical scene and a memorial plate.  On the outside, 1/4" Lucite SAR acrylic was installed.
