FROM THE DIRECTOR
Dear Parents,

You did it!

You kept Carline safe this morning, staying in line, keeping your hands on the steering wheels, giving positive and cheerful hello and goodbye greetings to your little ones, arriving on time so it all went smoothly.
  
That was Helpful!

     Look at the signs in the entrance when you arrive to see whether you go to your child's classroom or the general session first.
     Parking will be tight.  If the parking lot fills, park on the street and walk up the stairs.  The main door facing North Shore Drive will be open. 
A MESSAGE FROM BETH WILLIAMS, UCP'S Co-pastor for Faith Formation
Dear Parents,
     I am delighted to welcome you to the United Christian Parish Preschool, a ministry of the United Christian Parish of Reston. I had the pleasure of getting to know some of your children last year and had the opportunity to meet some new friends at Vacation Bible School. I look forward to meeting more of you and your children in the upcoming year.
     As part of our Preschool programming for your children, Jane Plum, Rev. Marcus Leathers, and I lead Chapel twice a month. Chapel is a time for the children to explore God's place in their lives and for sharing Bible stories, songs, and prayer. Should you have questions for me about Chapel or other aspects of your child's spiritual growth, please feel free to contact me at the Church Office: 703-620-3065 or email me  at  
beth@ucpreston.org.  
     At the Parish you can also find worship, Christian education, and music experiences that might interest you and your family. Our worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 am each Sunday, with childcare through age 2 provided. Godly Play for 3 years through 1st grade offers younger worshipers an opportunity to experience God at their developmental level during part of the 11:00 am worship service. Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:50 am, with 3 year olds through 5th grade in Bible Explorers where they get to explore how God's story and their lives come together. While your children are learning and growing in their faith in Bible Explorers, you have the opportunity to explore your faith as well through a variety of adult education opportunities ranging from the Christian perspective on issues in our world, to the basics of bible study.  
     During the week the children,1st to 5th grade, are invited to participate in the Genesis Choir. They practice each Wednesday 4:45-5:45 pm and ordinarily lead worship the 4th Sunday of the month. Contact Director Yvonne Kauffman at 703-860-0196 for more information.
I know that we are blessed by your child's participation here, and pray that they will be blessed by their participation here as well.  Blessings,
         Rev. Beth
