Our Commitment to Missions and Action
United Christian Parish has always been generous and highly active in local, regional, national and international missions.
UCP consistently donates 10% of its collected pledges to support missions. That is in addition to member's financial contributions to specific causes throughout the year.
We strive to do much more than "give with our pocketbooks", as vital as that can be. Our involvement includes the dedication of time and effort by adults and youth in a wide variety of mission work.
Our commitment to giving back to our community and striving to make the world a better place to live is a core element of UCP. UCP is one of the group of churches which founded Reston Interfaith (now Cornerstones) as a way of maximizing resources to address social problems in the Reston area. We always work with our denominations to address needs throughout the world where we feel we can make a difference.
