Each year in October we celebrate the heritage of all worshipers. Historically the Presbyterian Church's roots are in Scotland, For the Kirin' O' the Tartans we have a full bagpipe band, and a procession of Tartans. 

Intergenerational Leaders

The act of worship is an expression of the entire community. Active involvement of all particpants is an important part of our communal worship. Children, youth and adults take part in leading. 

Sacraments

The sacraments of Baptism and Communion are practiced regularly in worship. We celebrate communion the first Sunday of every month and at the early service during Advent and Lent.
