Brief Description of Subject: The Sarah Sparrow and Helen Sparrow Windows were a gift of Edward W. Sparrow in memory of his mother and his wife. They were installed in the church when the building was erected in 1914 and represent a more formal ecclesiastical style than the later windows around them. Each window depicts scenes from the life of Jesus as He carried out His ministry on earth. He is the central figure in the panels, which illustrate the scriptural quotations appearing below them.

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.
