Ministry at Paint Branch UU Church

Our Minister, Rev. Diane Teichert, suffered a stroke in April. During her recovery we are being served by our Interim Caretaker Minister Rev. Russ Savage. We are delighted that Rev. Diane has been able to visit the Sunday service twice recently, in September in a wheelchair, and in October walking with a cane and sitting in a regular chair. She reports that she has five or six rehab appointments each week, plus other medical appointments and procedures. "Recovery is lots of work and takes lots of time," she says. We are all looking forward to her return. In the meantime, Rev. Russ is conducting worship services (along with the Worship Associates) and is available for pastoral care and other church needs.


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

"What This Unitarian Universalist Believes"

Rev. Dave Hunter, with Carol Carter Walker, Worship Associate; Dayna Edwards, Director of Multigenerational Religious Exploration; and the Choir

Unitarian Universalists are creedless; beliefs aren't key for us; we're not required or expected to believe alike. But still people want to know what we UUs believe, and despite our protests, common beliefs are important for us. Our seven principles aren't enough. Rev. Dave Hunter is co-minister of the Unitarian Universalists of Gettysburg, PA. He is a graduate of Princeton University, Harvard Law School, and Wesley Theological Seminary. In an earlier career he was an attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department.

Religious Exploration for Children & Youth

Our Religious Exploration classes run September 19, 2014 through June 7, 2015. 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
