Join us in celebration of this unique tradition of the Presbyterian Church.
A bagpiper will greet you in front of the church beginning at 10:30 a.m. A procession of members bearing Tartans will soon enter the sanctuary to begin the service. If you wish to be a Tartan bearer, please sign up early so that you may have first choice. Let’s see all 56 of our collected Tartans in our sanctuary this year. You may sign up on the posters in Knohl Hall or by contacting the church office.There will be a luncheon immediately following the 11:00 worship service. The cost of the lunch is $10.00 each. Please sign up by October 15th to help determine number attending. Make your reservation by completing the form from your weekly bulletin with payment through the collection plate. Checks can be made out to SPC for Kirking Luncheon. Anyone interested in assisting with setting up, preparing, and taking down please contact: Kelly Holleman at 885-0922. You can also sign up here.NOTE: The 9:00 service will meet on Kirking Sunday but without the bagpiper and the tartans.
We welcome Laryn Weaver, Executive Director of the Greenville Area Parkinson Society, to SPC as she shares information about Parkinson's Disease including its symptoms and treatment options. Ms. Weaver will also share information about the Parkinson Society, its programs, and events. The Society offers support to those living in the upstate who have PD, their spouses, caregivers, and family members. You can also click her e for more information from their web site.
We are planning a trial of a “Hearing Loop System” that will improve the ease of hearing music and voices in our sanctuary. This system will transmit the sounds of our worship services directly to user’s hearing aids that are equipped with a T-Coil. Users can check with their hearing device providers to see if their aids are equipped with a T-Coil and if they are activated to function with Hearing Loops. Most current hearing aids have this capability.
I would like to invite both hearing aid users and anyone interested in learning about Hearing Loops to attend the demonstration by AMERICAN HEARING LOOPS in our sanctuary on November 7 at 2:00 PM. Bring your hearing aids or come and hear the effectiveness of the LOOP using provided hearing devices. These loops are already installed in The Peace Center, Central Presbyterian Church in Anderson, John Knox Presbyterian Church in Greenville and numerous other auditoriums and churches in our area. Reports from these LOOP locations tell us, in their words, that these systems are “a life changing experience” for the hard of hearing.
