New Stained Glass Windows Installed (10/1/13)

Gifts of Worship

The stained glass windows along the top of our sanctuary tell the story of our Lord and Savior.  On the left side, windows depict the Nativity, Baptism, Last Supper, and Crucifixion.

The large window in the center of our sanctuary (above the alter) depicts the central tenant of our faith: The Resurrection.

Until 10/1/13, the three windows to the right of the Resurrection window were blank (clear glass).  Thanks to the gifts of several long time members of our church, these places now continue the story.

Immediately to the right of the Resurrection window is the Walk to Emmaus window, showing Jesus’ appearance on that first Easter day.  After that are two new windows depicting the Ascension, and the Pentecost.  The final window (the “How Great Thou Art” window) reminds us of God’s glory and of the return of our Lord.

The Climb with Emmaus

The Stained Glass windows are gifts given to the church.  No funds from our general budget were used to purchase or install these windows.  In fact, enough funds from the gifts were left over to enable us to install a new window on the lower level near the staircase.  This window shows the cross and flame (Methodist symbol).
