As a kick-off to our fall celebration leading up to the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, on Rally Day, September 10, our Presbyterian Scottish heritage will be celebrated with a Kirkin’ o’ the Tartan service at 9:30 a.m.  At 10:40 a.m. a Sunday School class for all adults and high school students, “An Overview of the Reformation” led by the Rev. Al Butzer, will be held in the sanctuary. Pre-school, elementary, and middle school students will attend their Sunday School classes as usual.  Following Sunday School all are invited to a potluck picnic in Stanton Hall! The Fellowship Ministry will provide barbecue chicken and pork, coleslaw, buns, and beverages, and picnickers will be asked to provide side dishes which will serve at least 8 people. Those whose last names begin with A-H bring a vegetable/ I-O bring a salad/ P-S bring other sides/ T-Z bring desserts. Click here to make a reservation for the picnic so there will be enough meat and seats!

Worship at 9:30 am, Sunday School at 10:40 am and 11:30 am picnic!
