Gazing at the stained-glass windows in Old First’s chapel is a breathtaking experience. Members of the congregation gave generously to support the cost of creating and placing the expensive individual panels. The world’s most renowned stained-glass artists and studios were engaged, which includes the stunning work of Otto Heinigke, William Willet, and the Tiffany Studio (where are they based?).

Because time, weather, and city life have compromised the windows, a restoration process has begun. The first window to be restored: the Samaritan Woman at the Well as she listens to the revelations of Christ. This amazing artwork was created by the Tiffany Studio. Restoration of all of the windows will be a long term, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
