Celtic Worship Services
 
This annual event blends authentic
Scottish music, prayers, stories, and
scripture for a unique spiritual
experience. During the service there
will be a dedication and blessing of
Celtic heritages, where anyone who
desires may bring a symbol of their
Celtic heritage to be blessed. If you
have Celtic heritage in your family
background, you are encouraged to
wear something that represents that
heritage.

Church members and guests are
invited to gather in Fellowship Hall and
enjoy a traditional Scottish meal,
featuring an array of authentic

Highland Gathering & Church Tours
Grab your kilt and let the fun begin!
Members, guests, and friends are

The Barley House Band,
our parking lots will come alive with an
area for highland dance, crafts and art
for children, and authentic games and
contests for everyone to enjoy.  During
this time the building will be opened for
guided tours, featuring a historical
perspective on the strong Scottish
impact within our church’s history.

Following the outdoor activities,
everyone is invited to gather in the
