If you are visiting virtually but have never visited Paint Branch UU Church in person... We 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.
We hope to see you on soon!
This Sunday, October 30, 2016
The Reverend Evan Keely, Interim Minister; with Carla Miller, DMRE
This season of the year, holidays and holy days like Samhaim, All Hallows Eve (Halloween), All Saints and All Souls invite us to reflect on the complexities of our identities, individually and communally. Everyone is encouraged to come in costume to this multigenerational worship 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 6.
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 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. Youth remain in the service and then meet in the Youth Room afterwards.
Nursery care is provided in Room 5 from 9:45 to 12:45 am on Sundays.
