Legacy Pews and Windows

Restore a Piece of History

 

The Old Mt. Zion Church at ACRI has been fully restored to its former glory during the 1960s era. The light filtering through the stained glass windows casts a brillant glow on the majestic pine and heart pine pews. The Legacy Pew campaign provides you an opportunity to have a plaque placed on one of these beautirul pews in return for your generous gift of $5,000. Thousands of visitors each year will view your sponsored pew. The Legacy Pew plaques are available to commemorate a special person (in honor or memory), organization, freedom slogan, a memorable period or moment in time and other treasured remembrances.

 

A $5,000 donation to the Legacy Pew Campaign will be recognized with:

  • A commemorative 2”x4” Legacy Pew Plaque, placed on one of the beautifully restored pews in the Old Mt. Zion Church.
  • An engraving for the plaque, honoring the donor or a person or organization of the donor’s choice.

 

 

The Legacy Stained Glass Window campaign gives those who wish to donate at a higher level a chance to be recognized in a prime location in the Old Mt. Zion Church. With a $10,000 donation, you can have a plaque placed alongside one of the colorful stained glass windows that have been remade to reflect the design that the original marchers of the Albany Movement saw as they sat at Mt. Zion, readying themselves for demonstration and possibly jail. The thousands of visitors that come to admire the church and learn about the history of the Albany Movement will view your plaque. A $10,000 donation to the Legacy Stained Glass Window campaign will be recognized with:

 

  • A commemorative 4”x6” Legacy Stained Glass Window plaque, placed at eye level beside one of the bright stained glass windows of Old Mt. Zion Church.
  • An engraving for the plaque, honoring the donor or a person or organization of the donor’s choice.
