Holy Week Stained Glass Project:

We will be creating hand painted "stained glass" stations of the cross, on the windows by the front doors! We will be inviting members of the community to decorate each of the 12 panels (for the 12 stations) to represent the journey of Jesus's atonement. The windows will allow folks to enjoy the windows from the inside, and drive around the circle and enjoy from the outside if they are not yet comfortable coming in the building. This will also allow members of the outer community (like folks picking up from the co-op, dropping off donations, or just walking by) to enjoy the art as well.
