Yesterday was Reformation Sunday. To celebrate Calvin and the other reformers, we had a special service called the Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans (which is really awkward to write no matter how often I write it for some reason). This service specifically celebrated our Scottish heritage as a church.
There were family tartans (as India demonstrates)
Hannah and Sarah helped greet and pass out bulletins
The service would not have been as great without two people: Ben Hall (un-kilted)
and Carol Lambert
These drummers warmed up pre-service in the choir room
Susan played the organ beautifully
The choir enjoyed a change of pace from their regular robes
The newly formed children’s bell choir shared the song they’ve been working on: “The Blue Bells of Scotland.”
Rev. John shared an inspiring message.
And we welcomed the Kyilindi Pipes and Drums from Mt. Carmel, IL and the St. Andrew’s Society.
It was a beautiful fall day and a beautiful service.
