The Building May Be Closed, But Church Isn’t!

We know that church isn’t a building: It’s the people who gather within it. That’s why in this time of uncertainty, we are offering many ways to connect and “be community,” despite limitations. Check out the links you need to join online worship, get some help with groceries or other chores, attend a Godly Play session, or “play” with fellow youth by going here.
And please hold the entire community in your prayers. Indeed, given the global nature of this pandemic, we lift prayers for the world: for those who are ill and their families, for leaders everywhere facing difficult decisions, for health-care workers, and for front-line responders. God is with us.

Lent at BPC

We are working on creative ways to mark the season of Lent, and particularly Holy Week, despite having a shuttered building. Stay tuned!

BPC in Transition

Burke Presbyterian is in the process of searching for a new senior pastor. We are in the middle of a major construction project, through which we are upgrading and expanding our space. Our social justice team is energized, living out Christ’s work in the world. Our children and youth are showing up for music, mission, study and sabbath events. We would love for you to be part of our community. Write to learn more.

The BPC Preschool has a new, renovated space. Register for 2020-21 this month.

Church members and current and alumni school families may register for next fall starting January 16.  Registration for the wider community begins January 30.  Ours is a half-day preschool providing children a safe and joyful environment in which unique individuals are encouraged to grow into themselves. We create learning experiences to foster children’s physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual growth and development.  To schedule a tour of our newly remodeled Children’s Wing, email Susan Ariale at or call the school office at 703-250-1823.  You also may visit our website at We can’t wait to meet you!
