Mansfield History Glows On A Sunday Afternoon

19 Jul , 2022  

NOTE: The following post appeared in August 2019, showcasing photos from a visit to St. Matthew Lutheran Church. This week (July 2022), one of those photographs was featured in the “Vintage American Stained Glass” Facebook Group, where it was potentially seen by up to 6,600 members. Work is still progressing on the building, so we thought we would re-introduce you to this beautiful space.

As the real estate agent handed out flashlights to those entering the venerable St. Matthew Lutheran Church building on Sunday afternoon, he shared words of admiration for those who built the structure and the craftsmanship inside.

Entering the front door, one takes a short flight of stairs to immediately arrive in what can only be described as a breathtaking sanctuary. Light streamed through stained glass windows, including the large west window which features a scene with shepherds and a descending angel with a background of rich blues and greens.
