Integral to the Chapel are the six stained glass windows, fabricated in the classic style by The Willet Stained Glass Studios of Philadelphia.

These windows are made of hand blown pot metal glasses which are heavily barred and leaded. All painted portions were fused so they would not fade and would be able to last for hundreds of years. Each window consists of two subject medallions depicting a Biblical episode of the life and ministry of Christ. Each medallion beautifully illustrates one of the great “I Am” aspects of that ministry. Look closely at each window to see the high level of artistry and fabrication for which the late Mr. Willet was known.

The Chapel at Fernwood was constructed in 1962 as the first sanctuary for Fernwood Baptist Church. As you enter the vaulted foyer with its tiled floors, you can sense the sereneness of this place of worship.
