A Scottish Tea in Moclips

Seattle Presbytery

Everyone is invited to “A Scottish Tea” Sunday, May 20 at Chapel by the Sea Presbyterian
Church in Moclips, Washington. This is the first year for this occasion and celebrates
Presbyterian Heritage Sunday. It is a free event, from noon-2 pm in the Fellowship Hall.

You will be able to enjoy traditional Scottish Shortbread, Oatcakes, Scottish tea and other
delectables associated with tea in Great Britain. Focus will be on items favored by those in
Scotland, following with Presbyterian heritage. Salmon is a favorite in Scotland and on the
Washington coast and will be featured at the tea.

Exclusive to Washington state, Chapel by the Sea will have a travelling display of Home
Missions provided by the Presbyterian Historical Society, located in Philadelphia. Other displays
in 2012 are the Civil War and Age to Age (300 years of Presbyterian History). Also, some of
the states displaying this year include: Arkansas, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Virginia,
Georgia, New Mexico, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas and Florida, according to Lorraine M.
Brown, Senior Administrative Assistant of the Presbyterian Historical Society.

Presbyterian Heritage Sunday has been set aside by the General Assembly of the PC(USA) as
an annual day to celebrate, reflect upon, and learn more about the long and rich history of the
Presbyterian movement in the United States. It falls on the Sunday closest to May 21, the date
of the opening of the first General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of
America in 1789, according to the Presbyterian Historical Society.

communities. Visitors to the area and those of all denominations and faiths are welcome.
