Music is not man’s invention, but his heritage from the blessed spirits.

suggested donation of $10 for the luncheon

A procession of tartans and bagpipes celebrating our church’s Scottish heritage has become an annual tradition for the congregation. A luncheon will follow the 11 a.m. service on the front lawn. In the event of inclimate weather, the luncheon will be moved to Fellowship Hall.

A hamburger luncheon (RSVP for the lunch is not required) will be provided by Outback Steakhouse through their community outreach program to non-profit neighbors.

Our community is where we do business and our people live, work, and play. It includes neighbors and friends, other businesses, government, and local organizations. We embrace the responsibility for making our Community better by keeping this commitment: INVOLVEMENT – Getting to know our neighbors, making ourselves known to them, building relationships, and ensuring our restaurant reflect the diversity of the neighborhood. We are active in the community and make valuable contributions to it. We are a source of strength in times of need, give back, and consistently do our part to enhance the quality of the life in our Community. A way that we achieve success is through our Community goal of being: A valued member of the Community.

With a second-place prize from the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland under its belt, Lyon College’s Scottish Heritage Program truly is the most significant in the nation for bagpiping, drumming, and Highland dancing. The arts program is designed to teach, preserve, and celebrate the Scottish arts and traditions in America. Founded in 1872 by the Presbyterian Church, whose roots are in Scotland, Lyon College is the oldest private college in Arkansas.
