Calling all Scots! On Sunday, April 29, 2018, the First Presbyterian Church of Vero Beach will celebrate Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans worship services at 9am and 11am in the church sanctuary at 520 Royal Palm Boulevard, Vero Beach, FL, 32960. Each service will feature performances by local Scottish pipe band, the Vero Beach Pipes and Drums. Guests are invited to wear plaid, whether it is a kilt, trews, or just a small piece of plaid pinned to clothing. Tartan flags are also welcomed.

Tartans were used to identify Scottish families in the mid 1400's. They served as symbols of unity that held families together in strong bonds. The Scottish term, Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans, translates to Blessing of the Family. In 1941 the Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans originated in the United States when Dr. Peter Marshall conducted the first Kirkin’ service at the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C.  Since then, the service has been held in countless Presbyterian congregations across the country as a way to celebrate Scottish heritage and to honor the blessings that God gives to us as families.

For more information, please contact Ginger Lagemann, Music and Arts Administrator, at (772) 562-9088 or ginger@firstpresvero.org.
