Together we’ll explore our Presbyterian roots in the historic capital, Edinburgh and in St. Andrews, marvel at Scotland’s natural beauty in the Highlands and on the Isle of Skye, and explore Celtic spirituality on the peaceful Isle of Iona, the “Cradle of Christianity” in Scotland. This trip is sponsored by the Faith Development Committee and will be led by Rev. Kristin Riegel. This trip is sold-out; to be added to the waiting list, contact Rev. Riegel.
