Our Sanctuary Windows

“The stained glass windows which adorn First Congregational Church lend a quiet beauty and warmth of feeling not only to the Sanctuary of both church and chapel, but also to the person entering for silent prayer and meditation. These windows seem to bring light and life to what would otherwise be a rather uninspiring meeting place.”

To commemorate the cleaning and restoring of our sanctuary windows, we have uploaded the complete book by Paul Simpson McElroy to our website. This book was originally put together and made available to our congregation in 1986, thanks to the efforts of the Women’s Fellowship, and it provides the reader with an extensive and informative history of the beautiful stained glass windows in FCC’s sanctuary.

You can access the complete book in one file, or chapter by chapter, by clicking below.
