NHCC Teaching Windows

NHCC is blessed with beautiful stained glass windows.  The six double-paned "teaching windows" were added in the 1960's.  Each window illustrates two Bible stories.

This web page is not yet in final form.  We have all the windows now but still need to add details and more extensive information.

But you, gird up your loins; arise, and say to them everything that I command you.

The Parable of the Lost Son

The Parable of the Young Virgins 

And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, 'Lord, lord, open to us.' But he replied, 'Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.' Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

The Parable of the Sower

A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it. And some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew with it and choked it. And some fell into good soil and grew, and yielded a hundredfold.

The Parable of
 the Banquet 

"But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be recompensed at the resurrection of the just."
