Scottish Heritage Sunday
Come celebrate our Presbyterian Scottish heritage on Reformation
Sunday, October 26, with our annual Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans at a
special combined service. We will enjoy a local band Celtic Ties
playing traditional Scottish songs featuring the flute, fiddle,
mandolin, uilleann bagpipes, hammer & mountain dulcimer, penny
whistle, concertina, and harp.
What is a Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans?
This is a Scottish ceremony in which the clans annually
rededicate their families to God. “Kirk” is the Scottish word
for church or blessing and a “tartan” is the plaid fabric that
clans or families use to distinguish themselves. We have around
20 tartans with hand-crafted name plaques representing various
clans; we will have a procession and presentation of the family
banners during our service.
Following the combined worship service on October 26, join us
for a potluck luncheon!
The church will provide the meat, salad, and dessert. Please
bring a dish to share.
Celtic Ties will provide musical entertainment during our lunch.
