BCC 125th Anniversary Coloring Book Download

Over the course of  its 125-year history, The Briarcliff Congregational Church has been gifted many superb memorial stained-glass windows, 17 in all. These works of art were created by several prestigious studios, including Tiffany & Co., J. & R. Lamb, and Willet Studios.

The windows illustrate biblical, historical, and secular subjects, and are a wonderful reflection of the history, life, and traditions of the church as well as its links to the community. Beautiful and serene, powerful and inspirational, the windows also often provided a colorful distraction to children during long sermons!

 As we celebrate our quasquicentennial in 2021, channel your inner artist, be inspired, and enjoy coloring these examples and details from some of BCC’s fabulous stained-glass windows.

Please join us for a dinner at the end of our five-week celebration of BCC’s 125 years.
