Rev. Christensen

Installation of Rev. Rachel Christensen
4 pm, Sunday, May 6

We are pleased and proud to be formally installing Rev. Rachel Christensen as our Minister on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 4 pm in our Sanctuary and Meeting House.

We will have clergy from throughout the area and from out of state, both Unitarian Universalist, and from other denominations, local dignitaries, and visiting friends and family.

Our Choir will perform under the direction of Music Director David Chapman, and the Chalice Dancers will as well. We will celebrate Rachel’s ministry with us, and our path into the future together.

We hope you will join us. We will have refreshments and celebration afterwards. Childcare will be provided.


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 and for all ages (infants to elders), in a free search for the meaning of our unfolding lives.

Unitarian Universalism is a living tradition—it evolves with the times. We are people of all ages, many backgrounds, and many beliefs. We create spirituality and community by working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world. Our congregation embraces people who have experienced a variety of religious journeys, and we do so without judgement or condemnation. We do this by living our 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 soon!

Sunday at 10:00 am

"The Poor are Always with Us"

The Reverend Rachel Christensen, Minister; with Jeri Holloway, Worship Associate; Carla Miller, DMRE; The PBUUC Choir; and the Children`s Choir

Fifty years ago, in March 1968 the Kerner Commission published their report on the causes of the racial civil disorders that took place in many cities throughout the US. Poverty was one of the primary causes, and remains today a major influence on opportunity.

Religious Exploration for Children & Youth

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.

More information about RE programs at PBUUC.

Enrichment Hour at 11:45 am
