First United Methodist Church of Glendale
A sacred space — Our art & architectural brochure features a self-guided walking tour of First United Methodist Church’s cathedral-like sanctuary. If you haven’t seen this majestic building in person, visit on a Sunday morning for worship and hear the finest pipe organ in the city. Marvel at the abstract, brightly-colored stained glass windows and rich architectural symbolism. The AIA-winning building was designed in 1959 by architects Flewelling & Moody of Pasadena.
We were privileged to interview architect Mr. Jean Whinnery who created the symbolism, while researching, writing and designing this project.
