Ministry at Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church

Rev. Diane Teichert, our minister since 2009, suffered a stroke in April 2014. Because her recovery has not been as she hoped, she has resigned as minister effective June 30, 2015. For the past year we have been served by our Interim Caretaker Minister, Rev. Russ Savage. Russ will conduct his final worship service on Sunday, July 12, and will be available in the office until July 20. After that he will be on vacation but available for urgent matters. Our new Interim Minister, Rev. Evan Keely, will begin his duties on August 1, 2015. We anticipate an Interim Ministry of two years, during which we will begin the search for a new Settled Ministry to start in Fall 2017.


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

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.
