Grace Church is blessed to have a total of fifty-four beautiful stained glass windows of various sizes and types. The windows were placed at different times beginning in 1887 and completed over the years in stunning pictorial designs and styles. Many of the windows were given in memory of parishioners.
The original windows were made by skilled artists at the renowned stained glass firm of McCully & Miles of Chicago. Their windows and interior ornamental glass were featured at the famous 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Of interest is the magnificent Sunrise/Resurrection window that appears high above the center aisle entrance, brilliantly illumined by the early morning sun.
In 1887, The Freeport Journal-Standard described the Sunrise window as “…made of brilliant Venetian glass, heavily jeweled.” Visit Grace Church on any Sunday morning to experience its beauty – even on the cloudiest days! Our photo gallery features just a few of the windows that grace the walls of the church nave.
