The windows on each side of the sanctuary, designed and made by church members, represent the four seasons of God's World. Beginning with the back left of the sanctuary, these beautiful stained glass windows move from Spring to Summer around to Fall and Winter. An interesting thing was achieved in designing these windows. Between each pair of panels is a beam rising from the floor to the apex of the arch of the sanctuary. Depending on your vantage point, the beam sometimes blocks the view of the companion panel. Therefore, each panel was designed as an entity unto itself, even though its pattern continues beyond the beam to its companion panel. This format continues through all eight panels on both sides of the sanctuary.
Our open doors are waiting to welcome all who come to join in our Christian fellowship, to worship with us in God's house and to be encircled by "God's World" with the Holy Bible and the Altar in the center. This is a beautiful and sacred space where all may come and worship - through every season of life.
During this pandemic season, we are not able to meet in our sanctuary. However, we are offering three services each Sunday.
