Date of Window: 1982

Subject/Title of Window: Children’s window

Brief Description of Subject: This window was originally placed in the narthex. At some point it was moved next to the entrance of what is now used as a children's room. The only light it receives is from the lights inside the room. The pen and ink sketch was submitted to the Church by Stained Glass Specialty seeking final approval or changes the Church may want to make before the window is made.
Description taken from a booklet by the Church describing the 10 windows installed in 1982:
Christ is seated with children of varying ages. This also recalls His admonition to His disciples, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." The shining sun, the tree, the flowers, the small animals and fish exemplify the joy of the children and all nature at God's creation.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
