Tiffany Window Immersion &
Wine Tasting in Dubuque
Saturday October 27,
8:30 AM-5:00 PM
Join our Travel Fellowship to learn how
First Presbyterian of Davenport and St.
Luke’s Methodist Church in Dubuque
are artistically and historically
connected. Enjoy fall colors along the
Mississippi River too. St. Luke’s is
home to the fifth largest collection of
Tiffany Windows in the United States.
Every window in the church is a unique
work of art and all were created by
Louis Comfort Tiffany in New York.
Before the turn of the century, St.
Luke’s congregational members met
Louis Tiffany at the Chicago World’s
Fair in 1893, while their new sanctuary
was under construction. The
breathtaking results are just up the
road in Dubuque, IA.
The windows are only one of the many
similarities between our two
sanctuaries and church history. Come
join us for a private tour to learn the
“rest of the story”. Mr. Dayton Spence
was instrumental in restoring our
original sanctuary color palate with
brilliant colors and gold
embellishments. St. Luke’s ultimately
hired Dayton as their painting and
design consultant to bring back the
original jewel tones and Victorian
elements at St. Luke’s. Both churches
have Romanesque exteriors.
We start out the morning with a coach
tour of historic Dubuque led by a
professional guide from Travel
Dubuque. You will learn the stories
behind the city’s architecture and of the
influential families and religious leaders
who set the scene for its growth and
prosperity in the 1800s. This will be
followed by a guided tour of St. Luke’s
Methodist where our docent will share
the significance of its Tiffany treasures.
After our church tour, we plan to
sample wine at the Stone Cliff Winery
with some pizza. The winery is housed
in the historic Star Brewery building
overlooking the Mississippi. If time
permits group members will have time
to explore downtown before heading
back to the Quad Cities. Invite your
friends who might be interested in First
Presbyterian as their new church home
to join you. Register Now for $49 per
person with a minimum group
participation of 25 to reserve a bus.
Registration is non-refundable, but
transferable. Committee member,
Linda Meadors, (309-912-4888) will be
able to answer questions. Confirmation
letters will be mailed 2 weeks in
advance of the tour. Final date to
register is Friday October 19 or when
