Church tour held


First United Methodist Church Senior Pastor David Chivington, far right, talks about the history of his church’s main stained glass window during the Sidney Bicentennial Church Tour on Saturday, Oct. 17. The stained glass window was designed by Ida Goode to promote children of the world. Listening to Chivington are, left to right, Gabriel Rhodehamel, Gavin Wagner, 10, Abby Wagner, and Hannah Wagner, all of Sidney. The church originally had its brick facade exposed until in 1914 the pastor wanted to make the church look like a Spanish mission and had it coated in stucco. The church used to have a steeple that was later removed.
