Large Creation Window - the Old Testament. In six days God created the havens and earth and all living things... Then he took a day off. We are still working on this design as it is one tough subject. However, there will be night and day, water and land and living things with exception of man. For this project, mankind, is still under way... yet there is a rainbow we see as did Noah, the sign of God's promise to man, redemption. Window type - "In the beginning God created the heavens and earth." Genesis 1 Indeed it was very good. - GN 1:31

Front Vent Windows Left Trinity Window - three fish The first Christ symbol used by early members of the first century was the fish. Greek letters IXOYE carried the meaning of Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior. The rebus was used by early Greek Christians, later Roman Christians. The Roman C was also seen as a Greek Sigma meaning 'sign' This was picked up by Emperor Constantine who saw a white cross that he felt lead to his major victory and his later acceptance to his mother's (St. Helena) Christian beliefs.

Right Trinity Window - three of doves Shows three dove heads, two facing east, one west for all encompassing direction. A trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.. or, the two facing east - Peter and Andrew both of whom stayed home directing the small flock in Jerusalem prior to their mission work. And Paul who headed west later followed by Peter. The Episcopal symbol is by the left dove head, Peter from whom the ascendancy of bishop followed. The center dove, Christ with the X (chi) symbol also has the alpha/ omega the beginning and end. The last dove head has the rho/chi symbol - Christ the king and the shepherd's staff.

The Ascension Window or Omega - a red cross and a dove, these are several symbols we know of as Easter. A spring thing, the dove is a sign of new life and rebirth and of Christ's resurrection and ascension. Blooming of flowers, the return of birds a harbingers of spring rebirth. Birth, death and rebirth - the beginning and the end, the alpha and thus the omega letter. It's universal, the positive and negative, the ying and yang, birth and death rebirth. John 24 Window Type - Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again. our mass "The Resurrection and The Life"

The Ministry Window - It's what we are all about members of this church, community and nation... Verbally it was carried on through to the early generations of Christians to 4 gospel writers and the works and writings of St. Paul. We were to carry on by following the two great commandments and to remember our Lord through the sharing of his body and blood, the bread and wine. Suggested Vent Window Type - "do this in remembrance of Me." Luke 22

The Crucifixion Window - Three crosses on a hill one with a crown of thorns. Below a tomb rock with a shadow opening with the thought of - "Why do you look for him here?" Below a mustard seed plant with three branches each with three leaves (again the trinity thought), one branch broken, Christ, yet with several seeds on the ground, These are his many generations of followers. At the base of the empty cross, a trace of red. The symbols of this window are obvious. Suggested Window Type - "father, into Your hands I commend My spirit. " Luke 23 "No Greater Love Than This" JN 15:13

The Ascension Window or Omega - a red cross and a dove, these are several symbols we know of as Easter. A spring thing, the dove is a sign of new life and rebirth and of Christ's resurrection and ascension. Blooming of flowers, the return of birds a harbingers of spring rebirth. Birth, death and rebirth - the beginning and the end, the alpha and thus the omega letter. It's universal, the positive and negative, the ying and yang, birth and death rebirth. John 24 Window Type - Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again. our mass "The Resurrection and The Life"
