Brief Description of Subject: Arched window, ornamental, with medallion in center depicting open Bible. Stained glass window is set in transparent window along north side of church. It was transferred to its current location from the old First Methodist Church of Northville in 1977, and installed by Charlie George, of the church. The window was put in facing to the outside rather than the inside, thus the inscription "Holy Bible" is reversed.

"An open book, when used on ecclesiastic furnishings and stained glass windows refersto the Word of God, the Bible. The opened book indicates that the Scriptures are available throughout the most of the world for the dissemination of Christian truth.
