The Windows of

Lillington United Methodist Church

In the sanctuary there are twenty stained glass windows.  Twelve of these depict events in the life of Jesus, six of them show major Old Testament characters, and two of them remind of two of the persons who led the early Methodist revival in England and in colonial America.

 

Sanctuary

In the main part of the sanctuary (often called the nave of the church) there are ten windows depicting the earthly life of Jesus Christ.  Beginning on the south side of the nave, near the kneeling rail, there is the Nativity, next is the Boy Jesus in the Temple, then Jesus Blessing the Little Children, followed by the Feeding of the Multitude and finally the Triumphal Entry into to Jerusalem.  The story of Jesus life continues across the isle, near the vestibule. First, is the Last Supper, Jesus as the Good Shepherd, The Resurrection, the Crucifixion,  and Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.

  

Chancel

The chancel holds the altar, the place for the choir and pulpit.  Around the chancel there are six windows reminding us (on the south side) of Daniel, David and Abraham.  On the north side we find Moses, Jacob, and Isaiah.

 

Vestibule 

The vestibule is the entrance area between the “front” door and the main seating area.  It has four windows, two depicting the life of Jesus and two reminding us of the history of our church.

On the south side of the vestibule we find Jesus calling “the fishers of men” and John Wesley, who God used to revive Christianity in England in the eighteenth century.  On the north side we see Jesus knocking at the door and a picture of Francis Asbury who was used by God to establish Methodism in America.
