Ministry at Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church

Our minister Rev. Diane Teichert suffered a stroke in April 2014. During her recovery we are being served by our Interim Caretaker Minister Rev. Russ Savage. Rev. Diane is steadily recovering and periodically takes part in the Sunday worship service. She looks forward to returning to additional duties in the future. We are presently working to discern what that future will be like, since it is likely Rev. Diane will not want to return to full-time ministry. 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

"The 10th Annual Dance Service: “At The Still Point … There The Dance Is”"

The Paint Branch Chalice Dancers, Sharon Werth, Director; with The Erika Thimey Dance Company; and Jonathan Mawdsley, Worship Associate

We invite you to join us as we explore dance that comes from the still point, the meditative place inside us all. An excerpt from "Burnt Norton" in the "Four Quartets” by T. S. Elliot inspired the theme of this service.

This is an All Ages Celebration; children and youth are invited to remain in the Meetinghouse for the entire service. Nursery Care for the youngest is provided in Room 5.

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.

Enrichment Hour at 11:45 am
