Ministry at Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church

Rev. Diane Teichert, our minister since 2009, suffered a stroke in April 2014. During her recovery we have been served by our Interim Caretaker Minister Rev. Russ Savage. Although everyone has hoped for Diane's return for the past year, she has concluded that her recovery is so unpredictable that she has decided she must resign as our minister. The Board of Trustees will seek an Interim Ministry for the two years beginning in Fall 2015, with the intention of beginning the search for a new Settled Ministry starting in Fall 2017.

More information can be found in Diane's letter to the Congregation and the Board's response.


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

"What Brings Me Serenity?"

PBUUC Youth: Milan Monardes, Sophie Bernheisel, Abigail Wester, Lillian Enoc, Kevin Ahern, Caleb Porter, and Sara Earnest; with Youth Advisor Sonny Katz; and Director of Multigenerational Religious Exploration Dayna Edwards

The life of a teenager is filled with many competing priorities: school, family, work, church, extracurricular activities, friends, and the list goes on. This year’s youth service will focus on how we de-stress, in healthy ways.

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 5.

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.

Enrichment Hour at 11:45 am
