Message from the Board of Trustees

The Board is excited to announce that we have hired an Interim Caretaker Minister!!! The Sustaining Our Ministry Team (SOM) received the names of five candidates from the UUA Transitions Office and exchanged packets with two of the candidates. After interviews and reference checks, the SOM recommended Rev. Wm. Russell Savage as our Interim Caretaker Minister starting on August 1st! Rev. Savage (or Russ, as he prefers to be called) should be with us every Sunday in August for introductions. Russ lives in DC and attended Harvard Divinity School with Diane! We are really excited that he is joining us!


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

"Moral Tribalism or “Can We All Get Along?”"

Service Leader Tess Morrison; with Noel Monardes, Worship Associate

Join members of the Quest book discussion group in a service about the ideas in Joshua Greene’s book, Moral Tribes: Emotion, Reason and the Gap Between Us and Them, which explores neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy to encourage matching the right kind of thinking to the right kind of problem. When it is Me versus Us, think fast; when it is Us versus Them, think slow. How do we bridge the gap between the two? Perhaps the common ground between Us and Them is a global moral philosophy.

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
