The two-room Octorara Covenanter Presbyterian Church, 1188 Valley Road, Quarryville, is the oldest Covenanter Presbyterian Church in North America.

Annual Celebration and Worship Service
October 19, 2014

The Octorara Covenanter Presbyterian Foundation's Annual Celebration and Worship Service will be held at the Covenanter (Shrine) Church on Sunday, October 19, at 3:00 PM.  The historic old church is located on the north side of route 372 across the road from Middle Octorara.
 
For those who have indicated a desire to know more about the Covenanters, this service should be right on the mark.  Board member, Donald Henderson, will speak about Covenanter history and then lead the Congregation in the metrical singing of the Psalms.  Preserving this tradition is  truly significant since the Covenanters did not condone instrumental music.
 
The service will also feature the "Kirkin' O' Th' Tartans" ceremony and music by the Solanco Chorale.
 
Light refreshments will be served in the schoolroom after the service.
