We are an Open and Affirming Church: We respect the worth and dignity of all persons who come into our church family regardless of their race, age, gender, nationality, marital standing, economic status, mental or physical challenges, or sexual orientation. We promise to support one another in our personal struggles, to understand and accept differences in one another, and pray to strengthen our love and acceptance.

The Road to Emmaus
(Oil on canvas by Daniel Bonnell)


The Word:  Luke 24:13-35.  In the aftermath of Jesus' death, the disciples scattered.  Yet their hearts were still full of all Jesus had done and they couldn't help sharing.   

Our Message:  The Road to Emmaus   is the road of faith.  It's appropriate that Jesus appeared to the people as they journeyed forward to the next destination in their lives.  That is exactly how our faith is formed and grows - as we live it out.  Where are you on this Emmaus Road?  Have you met Jesus?  Are you still searching? 
Be assured that we are all on this journey together. 

With Children: Ingrid Stock will offer the Time for Children then the children are invited to attend Church School.

In Music: 
PRELUDE             "Nun Bitten Wir"  - Buxtehude        
OFFERTORY     "The Heavens Declare"  - Wetzler  
POSTLUDE         "Fugue in E minor" - J.S. Bach
  

Our Hymns:   The Church's One Foundation; Now the Green Blade Rises; and Now is the Time Approching."

Peter Marshall in 1941. It remembers the time when wearing clan tartans was outlawed. Today many churches, especially Presbyterian, will celebrate this on Tartan Day in April or St. Andrew's Day, Nov. 30th. In our Kirkin' service, we remember ancient times, as well as past and present kith and kin, while asking God's help and blessings in the future. We celebrate Scottish heritage and history clansmen demonstrated true brotherhood and the clan was the family. The tartan is a symbol of this love and togetherness.
