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 Sunday!
-Reverend Diane Teichert
This Sunday, December 15, 2013
Rev. Diane Teichert, with Ken Redd, Worship Associate, and our Lay Ministers
How we care for each other is a special ministry that is shared among us in many ways. Plan to visit the Holiday Craft Sale after the service.
Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church
At 4:30pm: All Ages Service with the Children's Choir and the Chalice Dancers. The Christmas Story will unfold in a spirited, no-rehearsal nativity pageant. Wear your own barn animal, angel, shepherd or magi costume, or one of ours, or just watch and be enthralled. At 8:00 pm: Carols familiar and carols new, stories old and stories true. Sense the calm settling in around us on this dark night, the “angels bending” to sing “peace on the earth, to all good will.” At both services, the offering will support Warm Nights and Community Café, programs for homeless people for which PBUUC volunteers.
Our Religious Exploration classes run September 15, 2013 through June 8, 2014. 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.
