The Ketchikan Presbyterian Church will Celebrate its Indigenous beginnings in a major event in August. Opening with a traditional welcome dance, the celebration will feature an afternoon gathering of friendship and sharing of the history and membership of the early church compiled by Rev Larry Emery. There will be an opportunity for those gathered to enjoy Native art and to help identify individuals in historic photos.
Following the welcoming gathering, a potluck of native foods will be enjoyed by all. Those attending will be encouraged, but not required, to provide a dish to share. After the meal, participants will adjourn to the sanctuary for the regular Sunday Worship Service focusing on our beginnings and reaffirming the apology of 1991 to the Native tribes of Alaska for inappropriate action and misunderstanding of various cultural aspects by the early Presbyterian Missionaries. As a part of worship, gospel hymns will be sung in the Tlinget, Haida and Tsimpsian languages. During the worship service, several native leaders will be recognized.
Anyone desiring to practice singing in a native language, having native art or photos to share, having ideas or wishing to volunteer / participate, please contact the Presbyterian Church at 225-3619.
