Ebenezer Baptist Church offers self guided tours of this historic land of the civil rights movement. The sanctuary became a spiritual haven for civil rights activists when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. served as senior pastor in the 1960s. On the self-guided audio tour, King's inspirational sermons will take visitors back in time, while the magnificent new Horizon Sanctuary across the street is home to the present day congregation. Ebenezer is located at 407 Auburn Avenue and is adjacent to the King Center.
First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta welcomes groups to see their beautiful windows. Dr. Sprole Lyons, the founding pastor, conceived the plan and designed the windows to depict the story of the entire Christian message. Artists of Tiffany, D’ Ascenzo and Willet created the artistic depiction. Then artisans skilled in glass window construction completed the windows. Dr. Lyons planned each window to be “beautiful, to be true to history, and to carry a message, the Christian message.” Later Dr. Gardner, who had followed Dr. Lyons as Pastor, noted that the windows came into being through the generous hearts of devoted members. If your group would like to hear more and see these beautiful widows William Lyons would be happy to talk with you. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beautiful new website on the windows -- Sermons in Stained Glass
