The South Church

About us links


The South Church windows are the work of Arlington Heights artist William Hamm. Themes were set by a South Church committee, and the designs evolved from discussions among Hamm, the committee and the donors. 


Our Stained Glass Windows..

Stained Glass Window of Jesus

Eight sanctuary windows were created, each with a different center piece depicting Biblical events. Two different narthex windows and a chapel windows were also designed and create

On sunny days, rays of colored light filter through these beautiful windows and light up the church.

...from "The Windows of the South Church and the people they honor" December 2006

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.
