Directions to our Location
Guiding Star is located at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, which is about 1 1/2 miles inside the 495 Capitol Beltway, in the Woodmont Triangle of downtown Bethesda, Maryland.
Access to the church parking lot is via Rugby Avenue. During the week when the preschool is in session (M-F, 7am-7pm) please look for a guest or unmarked parking space. Alternatively, there is a County Parking Garage on Auburn Avenue one block away.
If you use the parking garage during the week, bring plenty of quarters with you. Parking is free on Saturdays and Sundays. If you are taking the Metro Red Line, the church is 7 blocks northwest on Old Georgetown Road. If you prefer not to walk this distance, board the free Bethesda Circulator bus at the Bethesda Metro and get off right at the front steps to the church on Old Georgetown Road. The Circulator bus runs every 10-minutes Monday through Saturday but it does NOT run on Sundays.
If you are taking the bus, WMATA Metro Bus J9 stops in front of the church. Buses J2 and J3 stop 2 blocks away. Montgomery County Ride-On buses 30, 34, 47 and 70 stop in front of the church. As stated above, the free Bethesda Circulator bus stops right in front of the church Mon-Sat but NOT on Sundays.
