Churches have long been patrons of the arts, and Christ Lutheran Church, NALC, is no exception. Here are some of the unique artworks on display at Christ Lutheran for the Glory of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior.
Stained-Glass windows: The traditional style Stained-Glass Windows were originally designed for our old Sanctuary in Luther Hall but were incorporated into the design of our new Sanctuary when it was constructed in 1975, and tell the story of the Life of Jesus Christ.
Nativity Window – This window showing the birth of Jesus Christ hangs overhead in the narthex of Christ Lutheran Church. Shepherds have come to adore the new born King who is laid in a manger, or feeding trough. Christ was born in the town of Bethlehem, which in Hebrew means House of Bread. Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life! St. Luke tells us the story of Christ’s long awaited birth in the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 2.
Jesus Teaches in the Temple – This window tells the story of Jesus teaching the elders of the Temple at the age of 12, which is also related in the Gospel of Luke.
Jesus Welcomes Children – This window is from the Gospel Story where Jesus tells the crowds “Suffer the little children to come unto me”. Jesus welcomes people of all ages, even little children, no matter where they are from or whatever their race.
Jesus the Good Shepherd window – Jesus takes care of all his people like a good shepherd takes care of his flock. We celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday in Lent.
Jesus in the Garden Window – is located on the west side of the Sanctuary in the Chancel area to the left of the pulpit.
