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 America. 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.
The Presbyterian Historical Society supports Heritage Sunday by preparing bulletin inserts for use by congregations throughout the United States. 2013’s insert features communion tokens, a familiar feature of Presbyterian worship in past centuries. A day or more before a communion service, the pastor and elders questioned members of their congregation about their beliefs and behavior.
