Liturgical Arts Team News


Our Team enabled the sanctuary to be decked in Tartans for the  Kirkin O’ the Tartans.


Thanks to the men on the team, the tartan banner stands were placed, the railing was centered and the banner was hung outside. (We will enliven it for 2020). The women focused on ribbons, plaids and centering. Thank you all for the set up and the take down.


In August, there will be an opportunity for anyone who would like, to try their hand at silk painting. We will be doing 4 window shapes for the Season of Creation. This new season begins September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis. The themes for this year are: ocean, storm, fauna and cosmos. No talent is required, only a desire to reflect a little of our creation in our worship space.


Summer Worship Space


We will be worshipping in our sanctuary through October 6, World Communion Sunday. Our attendance in recent weeks has been above 100 and that means we have insufficient space to gather in the Chapel. Communion will continue to be held in the sanctuary on the first Sundays of the month.


Kirkin Review


We had a full service procession of Bag Pipes, Bible, Tartans, and Little Miss Tartan Emeritus. We had more Tartan bearers than we have had in several years and all seemed to have a connection to the Tartans they carried. In honor of Father’s Day, the men led us in a rousing verse of “How Great Thou Art.” Anne Tauber did an amazing job with the music (and she wasn’t even in the country!) She arranged for Frank Armato to play in her absence and he played such Scottish special music as “Abide with Me.” Beverly Barnett (Director of the United Methodist Church) led a Community Choir in a full rendition of “God of Our Fathers”. It was a morning that left us all feeling connected to a Clan.




Picnic Dress


Our second Sunday Lunch will be a picnic following worship. Therefore we invite all to dress in cool, comfortable attire for worship (whether you are attending the picnic or not).
