What's Happening at First Presbyterian?

Reformation Sunday's Kirkin' O' the Tartans - October 28

Posted: 09/17/2018


As Presbyterians, we know that our expression of faith was born in Scotland. So we celebrate our Scottish heritage on Reformation Sunday, October 28. Wear your plaids, your kilts and your tweeds as we celebrate the Scottish roots of our Presbyterian faith. We will muster on the Sanctuary steps at 10 am. After enjoying the bagpipers, we’ll follow the procession of the Bible, the tartans, the pastors and choir as we enter God’s house. During the service, we will hear of the daring, sacrificial faith of the first Presbyterians. We will call the clans and invite those of Scottish descent to lead each and everyone of us in affirming our faith in Christ our Lord. 

We’ll all thrill as the organ and the bagpipes are unleashed for the stirring “Highland Cathedral.” Bring your friends and don’t miss it!

Our congregational meeting will be a part of our service as we elect new elders and deacons as well as vote on proposed changes to the church Articles of Incorporation.
