In the Nave
Designed and fabricated by Emmanuel Stained Glass Studios in Nashville, the stained glass windows in the Nave are designed around the theological pattern of Pardon, Power, and Promise. This three-part sequence will be repeated on each side of the Nave with the pairs of windows opposite each other echoing the same theme.

South Windows (Main Street Side)
Pardon: Jesus forgives the woman caught in adultry (John 8:1-11)
Power: The coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentacost (Acts 2:1-11)
Promise: The rainbow: God's promise to Noah (Genesis 9: 12-17). Dedicated in celebration of the life of Olin Williams. The window depicts Noah's ark, with the dove holding an olive brand signifying dry land, and the rainbow in the sky -- the visible sign of the covenant made between God and his creation. This sign reminds us of God's promise to redeem and restore the world in accordance with this ultimate purpose.
North Windows (Courtyard side)
Pardon: The conversion of St. Paul (Acts 9:1-19)
Power: The Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20)
Promise: To be determined
