  • creation_windowThe Creation Window (Above West Entrance)
    A Memorial to Shirley Benner by the Benner Family

    The message of this window is found in Genesis 1:1.  “In the beginning God created…” The earth, the stars, the sun and moon as well as all contained therein are creations of a great and omnipotent God.  The rays speak of the glory of God who did all this.

    tree_of_life_doorThe Tree of Life Door (West Entrance)

    A Memorial to Alfred K Hiller by Evelyn Hiller, Family and Friends

    The Tree of Life in Paradise (Revelation 2:7 and 22:2) symbolizes God’s gift of eternal life to all who endure and conquer with Christ. Its leaves are for “the healing of the nations,” a sign that suffering, sickness, and death come to an end in God’s final Kingdom. The Tree, forbidden to Adam And Eve in Eden becomes available to all the faithful in the world to come.

    sacramental_windowThe Sacramental Window (Above the East Entrance)

    A Memorial to Albert Klein by His Family And Friends

    As the church has life in its proclamation of the Light, Jesus Christ, so He reaches into our lives using very ordinary items to get into our lives. Water, bread and wine are God’s way of getting inside and upon us. We see that the glorious God filled with power uses the simple to touch us.

    A Memorial to Philip M. Henze by Florence Henze, Family and Friends

    “I am the vine, you are the branches,” Jesus tells his disciples. He alone is our source of life and grace, and through him we are able to “bear good fruit” in acts of mercy and compassion and in sharing the Gospel.

    christ_windowThe Christ Window

    To the Glory of God & Honor of Our Families by Joe and Carol Berardino

    This window depicts the gifts of Christ to mankind. Central to these gifts is the Church. It is presented in a traditional symbol of the ship. Basic to this gift is the cross – the glory of Christ offered to men. In the lower panel is the symbol of the keys. This represents Christ’s gift to the church to function with authority. On the top is the staff on the rood. It says we, the Church are to go out into the highways and byways of life as Christ’s shepherd.

    christ_redeemer_windowChrist the Redeemer Window

    A Memorial to Our Parents by Mr. And Mrs. B. Stenger

    In this Window the Lamb of God becomes central to the expression of Jesus as Redeemer. As John the Baptist said of Jesus “Behold, the Lamb of God.” As the Lamb was the Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement Sacrifice, so Jesus is our Lamb. The chalice is part of the picture of the conveying of the redeeming gift. The “IHS” is a derivative of the first three Greek letters in Jesus. He is the Redeemer.

    risen_christ_windowThe Risen Christ Window

    A memorial to Walter Kroehnke, Martha Kroehnke and Karl Holpp By The Paul Kroehnke Family

    Central to this window are two essential symbols. The Chi Rho, the first three letters in Christ, comes out of the Palm leaves symbolic of victory and peace. The Phoenix coming out of the dying embers is an ancient symbol of the resurrection.

    preaching_teaching_windowThe Preaching Window

    A memorial to Marie F. Klokel by her Family and Friends

    This window seeks to speak of the very substance of the Church. We reach to the Old, The Scroll, and the New, The Book. The Epiphany Star, the Glory of Christ. The Alpha and Omega is what all is about. This window expresses the base of our message and the substance of what the Church is all about

    prayer_windowThe Prayer Window

    A Memorial to Andrew E. Hagen by The Benner Family George Wuthe by Marilyn and Daniel DelRe & Children George C. Janecek By The Herbert Helmer Family

    The hands, the trumpets directed upwards, the birds clapping upward are all symbols of prayer. They al come out of the palm, the picture of peace and joy, and out of thorns. So our prayers reflect our praise to God and the call for help in our lives. All this is through the Cross of Glory.

    holy_spirit_windowThe Holy Spirit Window

    Given in the memory of Louis and Ann Artale and John and Carmela Mounari by Dr. and Mrs. Charles P. Artale Their Beloved son, Phil by Phil and Florence Henze To the glory of God by Wilfred and Gloria Uhl

    In this window we have many symbols. We start at the top with the dove, symbolic of the Holy Spirit. The mother bird is touched by the Spirit of God and feeds the young. By the Spirit's work the mustard seed is planted and becomes a picture of growth in faith by the Holy Spirit.  At the base is the Holy Scriptures, “He called you by my word.”
