One Sunday in 1994, a vividly colored stained-glass window depicting a welcoming Christ replaced the simple, beige curtain behind the altar of The South Church. The window was a gift from a locally prominent couple, Jack D. and Geraldine Hughes, who were active in the church.
Within the next 12 years, every window in the sanctuary, narthex and chapel came to life with stained glass, as other members and friends of the church celebrated special occasions or memorialized loved ones. The names of those honored are etched into the lower right corner of the windows.
