St. Andrews Day

Kirkin' O' The Tartans

Held on October 23, 2016

Pastor Ted Broadway has introduced some wonderful new traditions into our church calendar.

Hope EPC had a wonderful Scottish celebration of St. Andrew's Day - The Kirkin' O' The Tartans – on Sunday, October 23rd. We celebrated the Presbyterian church's roots in the Church of Scotland. A kirkin' is a blessing and the event included a blessing of families and thanksgiving for our Scottish heritage, complete with a piper, a beadle ,kilts, men's Sporan bags, and a scripture reading in 'Broad Scots'. (Beadle, is a lay official of a church who may usher, keep order, make reports, and assist in religious functions.)
