What's Happening at First Presbyterian?

Reformation Sunday's Kirkin' O' the Tartans - October 29

Posted: 10/05/2017

As Presbyterians, we know that our expression of faith was born in Scotland. So we celebrate our Scottish heritage on Reformation Sunday, October 29. 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.

The congregation has nominated the following members for the 2019 class of officers. Please pray for our leaders.

Clan Tartans for the Kirkin’

Congregational Lunch 

Stay after worship for a $5 box lunch ($20/family) on North Boulevard. There will be a youth-sponsored cardboard maze in the gym as well as sack races, tug of war, a horseshoe toss and a photo booth on the grounds. Fun for kids and adults! Special music on the grounds will be provided by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter James Linden Hogg and his father, Jim.
