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
This Sunday, November 2, 2014
Beth Baker, guest speaker; with Carol Carter Walker, Worship Associate; and Dayna Edwards, Director, Multigenerational Religious Exploration
Beth Baker, local author and member of Washington Ethical Society, will talk about grassroots efforts to live with more intention and community in the next chapter of life. These issues are explored in her latest book, With a Little Help From Our Friends: Creating Community As We Grow Older, which will be on sale after the service.
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.
