This year our Kirkin' celebration will focus on our church's connection and support for Presbyterian missions and our partnership with our denomination's seminaries.
A highlight of this annual event is our colorful procession of the tartans carried by members of Scottish blood. If you have your personal tartan and would like to join the procession contact Ruth Lundy.
Our special guest preacher at the 8:45 & 11:00 a.m. services is Dr. Frank M. Yamada, President of McCormick Presbyterian Seminary in Chicago.
Our Executive Presbyter will be with us in Stewart Hall during the education hour, 10:00 - 10:45 a.m., to explain to us how Christ’s Mission is expressed through our corporate witness (ie. As churches). This is to remind us of one of the foundations of our Mission Statement at the church - The Mission of Jesus Christ at First Presbyterian Church of Wheaton is: to provide witness to the reconciliation of people through and beyond the gathering of the church.
Childcare for ages 1-3 is available during the service. Older children are invited to stay in the worship service with their parents.
