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

"Hey This Is Our Bay"

Guest Speakers: Dick Graham, Jane McKeel, Hank Lewis, Joan Lewis, and Bob Maybury; with Noel Monardes, Worship Associate

The service on March 1st was created by two longtime Unitarian Universalists from Arlington, VA, Dick Graham and Jane McKeel. Their strong respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part the 7th Principle of our faith fuels their concern for the restoration efforts of the Chesapeake Watershed and about a concerted attack upon those crucial efforts at this very moment. To share this situation with others, they developed this presentation in the form of a scripted television interview: "Hey, This is Our Bay." Dick was Founding Director of the UU Affordable Housing Corp. in 1990 (now morphed into the Open Door Foundation). Co-author of two full-year UU curricula, Living the Promise and Jesus & His Kingdom of Equals, Jane McKeel served UUCA as Director of Religious Education 1985-91.

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.
