Stained Glass

The stained-glass windows of Peace With Christ were designed to convey a message.  The Stained-Glass Committee collaborated with design and glass artist Marge Davis to present Scriptural images to fill the windows above the Nave. Each window portrays an aspect of God’s grace revealed in Holy Scripture and fulfilled for us in Christ Jesus.  The windows are not only decorative, but they are also intended to aid in worship.  It is our prayer that they will provide a constant reminder of God’s faithfulness to us and to the whole church on earth.

The windows follow a simple pattern.  Pictures and descriptions for each side in links below. As you face the altar:

Left Windows are from the Old Testament and point to Christ as the center of those Books.
Right Windows are from the New Testament and depict the words and works of Jesus.
Rear Windows contain four designs that draw on descriptions of Jesus from Holy Scripture. The central window is a design of the Luther Rose.
Front Windows represent God’s gifts of grace given in the Word, Holy Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.  The windows on each corner of the chancel wall represent our response to the gift of forgiveness and faith.

A local company explains the symbolism behind the colors used in stained glass.

Stained glass windows help bridge the gap between the earthly and the divine. Through these images God’s gift of light can be an ethereal experience of color and light.
