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
This Sunday, December 21, 2014
Guest speaker Katherine Earle; with Jonathan Mawdsley, Worship Associate; and the PBUUC Chalice Dancers
On this shortest day of the year, people use this time for introspection, reflection, and family. The Norse tradition believes in "a gift for a gift." As we give our congregation the gift of support and fellowship, we will ask the gods for a gift in return as the wheel of the year turns.
Rev. Russ Savage with Worship Associate Noel Monardes, the Choir, and Chalice Dancers
Come, hear 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 Earth, to all good will." The service will end with the traditional candlelight ceremony. [The offering at both Christmas Eve services will support the Warm Nights program to shelter the homeless.]
Rev. Russ Savage and Dayna Edwards, Director, Multigenerational Religious Exploration, with Worship Associate Van Summers, 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. The service will end with the traditional candlelight ceremony. [The offering at both Christmas Eve services will support the Warm Nights program to shelter the homeless.]
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.
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.
