Trinity's Stained Glass Windows

Trinity has several beautiful stained glass windows to enjoy. In 1926 the interior of the church was remodeled and redecorated. Stained glass windows, donated by members, were added in the sanctuary.

The front window on the west wall shows Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, as He prepares to accept God's will and face a trial and crucifixion. The next window shows Jesus after His resurrection, meeting two of His disciples on the road to Emmaus.

The third window on the west side reminds us of Revelation 3:20: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." The front window on the east wall reminds us of the parable of the sower, when Jesus tells us how the response to His message is affected by the circumstances of human life; that is, his words do not always "fall on fertile soil."

The next window depicts Jesus blessing the children when his disciples attempted to send them away. Jesus told his disciples that the kingdom of God should be received with the trusting simplicity of a child. The third window on the east side shows Jesus as the Good Shepherd. Jesus was the fulfillment of Old Testament promises that God himself would come to shepherd his people.

The first windows on either side of the altar area contain symbols that are reminders of the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.

Finally, look at the small religious symbols that are located at the top of the six large stained glass windows. There are also smaller images at the top and bottom of the windows on each side of the balcony (the middle of these windows is blocked by the balcony), and on the windows in the stairwells leading to the balcony. Here are some of those symbols:

The star of Bethlehem (west stairwell) takes us back to the time of Jesus' birth. INRI (the sign on the cross) and the crown of thorns (east stairwell) are stark reminders of the crucifixion.

The Greek letters alpha and omega (both in the balcony) remind us that God has been with us from the beginning of time and will be with us to the end of time. He is always there for us.

The dove with the olive leaf (under the balcony) helps us remember that God saved the faithful few after the Great Flood. The Lamb of God (under the balcony) is a reminder that Jesus was our sacrificial lamb. He died for our sins.

We see the opened Bible (west window) as a source of inspiration and direction for our lives. The Ten Commandments (east window) are shown on two tablets, with numbers 1-3 on one tablet (our relationship with God) and numbers 4-10 on the other (our relationship with others).
