The following description is based on notes from the Church's Stained Glass Tour held on Sunday, April 28, 1985.
The left lancet picture is named "Creation" and shows God's hand reaching down from the cloud. We see sky and water, sun and moon, and a tree representing growing things.
The right lancet picture is named the "Fall of Man." God gave man a choice. The tree and snake represent temptation, the result was original sin.
The artist for this window was Edward Glubka.

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.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
