Go into the world remembering that you are the people of God and that you bear the name of Jesus Christ. Bear His name carefully, for you are not your own. Bear His name gratefully, for you have been purchased at a price. And bear His name joyfully, for He enlists each of us in His service.

Our congregation was established in 1731 when twelve Scottish families separated themselves amicably from the Independent Meeting House (now the Circular Congregational Church). This separation allowed them to govern themselves according to the forms and discipline of the Church of Scotland as opposed to the congregational system.
One of the ways in which this Scottish heritage is reflected in our present sanctuary is through the image of the seal of the Church of Scotland, depicted in the central window of the rear balcony. In the seal, the burning bush is encircled by the Latin inscription "Nec tamen consumebatur," meaning "Nevertheless it was not consumed."
We celebrate this aspect of our history on Scottish Heritage Sunday each September with kilts, bagpipes, and the Kirkin' o' th' Tartan.
