Donate
Get ready to roll up your sleeve, lay back and take it easy for about 30 minutes and then get cookies for your effort. Can you believe it cookies for taking it easy. Yes indeed, First Presbyterian is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive and everyone is welcome. This is a critical time for the need of blood donations. Please go to the American Red Cross website and look up our event and sign up for a spot that best works for you. However, "walk in's" are welcome and anyone who comes to the event will be given the chance to donate. Anyone that gives a donation or tries to give a donation will be welcome at the cookie and juice table (really good cookies). Please put June 30th on your calendar and come visit with some of your church members working the event.

Volunteer
Attention all possible volunteers, First Presbyterian is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive and we are looking for volunteers to assist with donor check-in (minimum computer skills needed) and volunteers to assist donors after they have completed their donation. Volunteers will also help with giving out cookies and juice/drinks to the donors.

Contact Curtis Watson at 404-550-1212 or wats1818@bellsouth.net to volunteer.
Presbyterian Heritage Sunday Kirkin' o' the Tartan

On Sunday, September 25th, we will commemorate the rich history of the Presbyterian Church with origins deeply rooted in the Church of Scotland. Our worship service will open with a processional of bagpipes and field drum, combined with our beautiful pipe organ, to the magnificent tune "Highland Cathedral". As part of the service, we will present and bless the tartans.
Over the course of the next two months, you have the opportunity to purchase a tartan in your family name (ancient or modern). A member of your family will get to participate in the processional, carrying your family tartan, and will then be a part of the presentation and blessing, as well as the recessional at the conclusion of the service. Tartans can also be purchased for any branch of the military, as well as the United States Tartan. The St. Andrews Cross flag is also part of the service.

Please contact Alicia Taylor at alicia@fpccov.org or 770-656-6848 for pricing, questions, and to order a tartan. If you email, please provide the tartan family name, the name of the individual ordering the tartan, phone number, and email address, as well as whether you will be paying by cash or check. You can do a search for your family tartan HERE.

An Extra Connection to FPC Covington!
The Saint Andrews Society of Washington, D.C. held the first Kirkin' during the early years of World War II. Former pastor of FPC Covington, Dr. Peter Marshall, an eloquent Scot, and then Chaplain of the U.S. Senate, led the service in 1943, choosing "Kirkin' o' the Tartan" for the title of his sermon. His sermons were so popular that a request was made for their publication, with the proceeds designated for war relief programs. As the war continued, the D.C. Saint Andrews Society continued to hold prayer services for the British subjects. These became known as Kirkin's.
