Presbyterians hosting Kirking O’ the Tartans service this Sunday
Cairo Presbyterian Church is again hosting its Kirking O’ the Tartans on Sunday, Nov. 18, beginning at 4 p.m.
Church leaders say they began holding these celebrations of family and heritage back in 2000 and continue to welcome all to join them for the unique service.
“From the bagpipers leading the procession of tartan banners and family quilts to the fellowship of a covered dish meal, it will be a special service as we celebrate neighbors who rallied and helped each other through the challenges of Hurricane Michael. In that spirit, a voluntary love offering will be taken up and given to our local Grady County Help Agencies,” says Nancy Kemp, church member.
Dress is casual and tartan or plaid.
Visitors don’t have to be Scottish or Irish or even Presbyterian to attend. Kemp says, “Just come, worship with neighbors and friends at 4 o’clock Sunday afternoon on Nov. 18. You’ll even learn why we include family quilts, coverlets, afghans, etc. in our service.”
