Message from the Board of Trustees

In an effort to keep you updated on the way forward, the Board of Trustees has compiled the following list of who is responsible for what during Rev. Diane's absence:
- Acting Head of Staff (in coordination with the Board): Dayna Edwards, Director of Multigenerational Religious Exploration.
- Worship Services (through August): Lay-led services coordinated by the Worship Associates.
- Pastoral Care: the Board is working with the UU Minister's Association to hire an 'On Call' Minister to provide pastoral care as well as cover weddings and memorials.
- The Board appointed the Sustaining Our Ministry (SOM) Committee of Jonathan Mawdsley, Don Gerson and Carol Carter Walker to recommend a candidate to help sustain our ministry during Diane's absence. The Board will then vote on hiring the candidate.


If you are visiting virtually but have never visited Paint Branch UU Church in person... I invite you to join us this Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. for spirited worship, ready companionship, and religious explorations of many kinds, for all ages (infants to elders), in a free search for the meaning of our unfolding lives.

Unitarian Universalism is a living tradition, meaning that it evolves with the times, with roots in the Christian movement among first century Jews. Today, our congregation embraces people whose religious journeys are amazingly varied on a common quest that embraces historic Unitarian Universalist values: affirmation of diversity, freedom of conscience, and the use of reason.

Nurture your spirit and join us in doing the work of love and justice in our world.

I hope to see you on soon!

-Reverend Diane Teichert

"Our Family Matters"

Service Leaders Carmelita Carter-Sykes, Janet Overton, and Bekki Ow-Ärhus; with Bettie Young, Worship Associate; and, guest pianist Audrey Andrist

A family is as strong as each member's ability to accept and appreciate all of its members. A family is secure when all can share their thoughts and feelings and know they are heard. A strong family doesn't denigrate its members for being different, and stands against those who do. As a church family, we at PBUUC have issues to come to terms with. This DARTT Summer Service and the Enrichment Hour Reverberations discussion that follows aim to create a more inclusive family in which all can thrive. Please join us as we examine the effects of assumptions and prejudgments on everyone.

Religious Exploration for Children & Youth

Our Religious Exploration classes run September 15, 2013 through June 8, 2014. Children and youth begin in the Meeting House with their families every Sunday.

Together Time brings our whole congregation together for worship for the first fifteen minutes of service every Sunday. During this time, there is opening music, the welcome, chalice lighting, a hymn and a story, song, movement or meditation for all ages. Children and youth are then sung to the RE classes in the RE Building. On some Sundays, there is a special shared Children's Worship in the RE building, which takes the place of the regular RE classes.

Nursery care is provided in Room 5 from 9:45 to 12:45 am on Sundays.

More information about RE programs at PBUUC.

Enrichment Hour at 11:45 am
