Altar WindowOur stained glass over the altar is special and has become a church signature, reflecting our theme of "A Church by the Sea."

It was a gift from Russell N. Monbleau (the brother of The Reverend Dr. Charles H. Monbleau), and was dedicated on December 11, 1966 in loving memory of their parents, Charles J. and Alice Monbleau.

The central figure is Christ at waters' edge. In the background, beneath His right hand is a small sailboat and ocean waves. Above are clouds and seagulls. At His feet, on either side, are small rosebushes. The border of the window contains scallop shells, dolphins, fish, conch shells and anchors, all symbols of the Christian Church.

Fish - symbol of Christ.
Dolphin - symbol of Resurrection and Salvation
