Discover a Church’s History in Stained Glass at Glenview in January

Rockville history comes alive through stained glass in January as the Glenview Mansion and Peerless Rockville Speaker Series hosts “History and Stained Glass of Jerusalem-Mt. Pleasant Church.”

Chiquita Sorrels, historian of Jerusalem-Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, will deliver an illustrated presentation that explores the church’s history with a focus on its stained-glass windows.

The in-person presentation, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12 at Glenview Mansion at Rockville Civic Center Park, 603 Edmonston Drive, will explore how the church evolved from its founding in 1835 with a racially mixed congregation to an all-Black congregation after the Civil War and, in the 20th century, added stained-glass windows memorializing individuals and organizations in the community.

The event is free, but registration is requested at www.eventbrite.com/e/465821844677.

For more information, call Glenview Mansion at 240-314-8660.
