First Presbyterian: A Self-Guided Tour of Stained Glass
October 2 @ 10:00 amFree
First Presbyterian Fargo is one of the oldest churches in Fargo. Construction was completed in 1929. Much of this neo-gothic building was remodeled in the early 21st century, but, with few exceptions, the sanctuary remains in its original construction, particularly the stained glass windows and stone columns. These memorial art windows were created by Weston and Leighton Studios, Minneapolis. The lower windows on the west and east sides tell stories from the New Testament. The four-panel balcony window is an artist’s depiction of the Gospel writers. The large three-panel east window depicts Moses, Jesus, and John the Baptist and on the west, the panels are Faith, Hope, and Charity from 1 Corinthians 13. The choir window sits above the Schantz pipe organ console. The church will be open Mondays – Thursdays, 10:00am – 2:00pm for self-guided tours of the sanctuary. Park in the west parking lot; come in the glass doors; pick up a window map at the Welcome Desk. There will be signs to the sanctuary. On the occasion of a funeral, the sanctuary may need to be closed.
