Nordland's Stained Glass
The Dove - Entryway Glass
This is one of two stained glass pieces found in our entryway. All pieces at Nordland are done in a similar style. Some panes at Nordland have been replaced over the years for various reason, but the windows are still largely original.
The Lamb of God - Entryway Glass
This is one of two stained glass pieces found in our entryway. The stained glass at Nordland now has storm windows protecting the outside to prevent further damage and to keep in warmth. We also have black covers for them to darken the sanctuary when a dark mood is desired for the service.
