This Week in Religious Education - Easter Can Hunt!

This Sunday, April 20, we will have two multigenerational services. Accordingly, there will be no RE classes; however, children are invited to participate in our annual Easter Can Hunt which will take place after both services.  Please have children bring a basket for the Hunt.  We will have extra baskets available for anyone who needs one.  All cans will be donated to Cornerstones after the activity. Any adults who are interested in watching the fun and helping to hand out prizes are invited to join us outside on the playground immediately after both services.

Child and Youth Faith Development Committee Visioning Workshop

Please join the Child and Youth Faith Development Committee (formerly the RE Committee) for an Envisioning Workshop with Reverend Pat Guthmann Haresch at the UUCR on Saturday April 26th from 5-7:30PM.  We will be working with Rev. Pat to determine the shared vision of parents and the congregation for our Child and Youth Faith Development program going forward. Dinner will be provided at this family friendly event!  Rev. Pat will hold an additional follow up session on Sunday April 27th at 12:30 (after the 11AM service) to provide a summary of the Saturday session and to address any additional thoughts from parents and the congregation.  Child participation is encouraged on Saturday and childcare will be provided during the Sunday session.  This workshop is another vital step in our congregation's journey to be prepared for a DLFD and we request your participation to leave a lasting gift and legacy that will benefit our children for years to come.

Activities and Highlights

Our theme for this church year.  We are inspired to build bonds within our church, our Reston community and the larger world.  We have made this the theme of our annual stewardship campaign:  Love + Time + Energy + Money = the strength of our community.  The second Sunday of every month we honor a group that has made a contribution to strengthen our community.
