Merry Christmas from Unity Preschool!

It has been so fun and joy-filled spending time with your children as we enjoy their excitement and anticipation during this most magical season of Christmas! During this time of faith and family, may the true meaning of Christmas fill your hearts with His Love and Perfect Peace.

P.S. Yes, we have preschool next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but this is the last Newsletter for 2019:)!

Happy Birthday Jesus Party

Please join Unity Presbyterian Church this Saturday, December 14 at 10:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall for an angelic celebration for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This event is sponsored by Unity's Children's Ministry Team. We will worship and fellowship through crafts, games, songs, and a snack. Birthday presents will be donated to the Fort Mill Care Center. Diapers (size 3 & up), baby wipes, baby food, and Gerber baby formula are most needed at this time. All families with children 1st grade and under are especially invited. Older siblings are also welcome. A green flyer was sent home last week with the information.

Christmas Eve Worship Service Options

If you are looking for a place to worship with your family on Christmas Eve, Unity Presbyterian Church has several options and we would love for you to join us:

* 2:00 PM- Full Communion using trays will be served. This is a good time for members who do not like driving at night or for those who need to begin their Christmas travels that afternoon.

* 4:00 PM- This will be a family- oriented service where Communion will not be served.

* 6:00 PM- Music will be provided by the chancel choir and Communion by intinction will be served.

* 8:00 PM Candlelight Service- This service will include special music and Communion by intinction. Individual candles will be distributed and lit in the Narthex and the service will conclude with the singing of Silent Night in the gathering area outside in front of the Sanctuary.

Nursery will be available for the 2:00 PM, 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM services.

Scholastic Book Order Thank You

Thank you for ordering books from Scholastic. We once again earned maximum points and are so appreciative of your support so that we can purchase more books for our Preschool library. We will offer our last Scholastic Order in late April before the end of the school year.

Meet Coach Sonia - Our Playball Coach

We are excited to welcome Coach Sonia to Unity Preschool! Coach Sonia runs our Playball program for our Three's and Four's classes. The aim of Playball is to introduce young children to constructive and enjoyable sport participation through age-appropriate activities. Ms. Sonia relocated to Charlotte from Montreal with her husband and two children. She is fluent in FOUR languages: French, Italian, English and Greek! Coach Sonia loves her children, travelling and sushi and does not miss snow!
