Stained Glass Windows From Our Sanctuary
“Storied windows, richly dight, Casting a dimm religious light.” The Community Reformed Church at Manhasset is blessed with its stained glass towering above for all to see. Their colored glow has given countless people the feeling of reverence and awe. Many biblical scenes are depicted with accompanying symbolism. Here you may use your imagination to envision Jesus at the seashore gesturing to Peter and Andrew. Look at the window long enough and you might even hear him say, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Or, look up at the Moses window as he makes his way down the mountain. You can almost hear him thunder his imprecations to his older brother Aaron for the people’s transgressions (Exodus 19-20). Take some time to silently pray and gaze upon the Gethsemane window. There we are confronted with Christ’s anguish as he sweats drops of blood while the disciples sleep (Luke 22:44-45). Below are some of our stained glass windows from the sanctuary. Why not stop by and experience our windows in person? You’ll be glad you did! The sanctuary is a wonderful place to meditate, pray and appreciate the beauty of these “storied windows.” Join us on Sundays for worship, or make an appointment for a conducted tour.
