The Epworth League window was removed and stored for over thirty years in the church attic. The window was not damaged and has been reworked for the elevator addition. The Epworth League was first organized as a Christian endeavor in 1888 and the following year was organized as the Epworth League. In 1889 such a society was started in Grand Ledge. The Epworth League was the forerunner of the Methodist Youth Fellowship, prior to 1939. It was the youth organization of The Methodist Episcopal Church. The name, was taken from one of the towns in England where John Wesley's father, Samuel, was Anglican Priest. The primary arms of the logo are cruciform in shape.
