When you enter into the sanctuary of Maples Memorial UMC, you will be surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows.
Historically, windows have not only been used as a source of beauty and inspiration, but as a teaching tool as well. In addition, the beauty and the symbolism of the windows helps prepare you for worship.
We hope that this explanation will help teach you some of the foundational stories and ideas of our faith to others.
Surrounding the Welcome Window, as well as the Corridor, History, Narthex, Dormer and Cupola windows, is a band of red. In addition to its shape being reminiscent of and tying all the windows to the Christ window, its bright red color is symbolic of the sacrifice that Christ made on our behalf.
