The Bell Tower at WPPC has been an icon of the church since it was completed on February 24 1959. The cupola was crafted by Coppersmith William Bissontz using 16 oz, cold-rolled copper, weighing in at around 1,500 pounds. It was dedicated to be a symbolic lantern as a constant reminder that WPPC is a sanctuary of worship to God, who is a 'lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path.'

The copper cupola from the Bell Tower was ripped from its moorings and plummeted to the roof of the finance office, then to the ground below. The cupola was damaged beyond repair by the fall, so Edward Majewski of EJMcopper, Inc. was commissioned to provide a replacement. They carefully measured and documented the details of the original and crafted a duplicate in their Orlando shop.
