December 2018 Announcements

Elder & greeter for the month: Elder Bonnie Wolfe

The worship service on December 2 will take on a Scottish flavor as we remember and pay homage to the Presbyterian Church’s Scottish ancestry with a “Kirkin’ o’ the Tartan”.  All members with Scottish family ancestors are invited to wear their family tartan. Take notice of the Clan MacDonald tartan flag which is in honor of The Presbyterian Church of Gatesville’s first called minister, The Reverend Thomas MacHutchon of Scotland, when the church was chartered March 1, 1885. The MacHutchon family was a sept (or sub family) of Clan MacDonald from the Highlands of Scotland. This flag was donated anonymously to commemorate and honor all the ministers who have faithfully served this congregation over the years and will be placed outside the pastor’s office after today’s worship service.

The men of the church will gather for men’s Breakfast on December 5 at 8:00 am at Rancher’s Steak House, Wednesday. All are welcome – bring a friend/neighbor.
