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!

"American Patriotism, Exceptionalism and the UU First Principle"

The Rev. Evan Keely; with Van Summers, Worship Associate; and the Choir

If we as UUs believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every person, how can we hold out the notion that we as Americans are better than others, no, the best? How can we be UU patriots and exceptionalists and act out of our first principle? Can these ideas be reconciled?

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
