First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

The UU flower communion ceremony honors our religious commitment to coming together in community with our many diversities.

Members and friends enjoy opportunities getting to know each other through social events and other church programs.

Interfaith religious leaders gathered September 6 at the Berks Detention Center to call for an end to family detention of asylum-seeking mothers and children.

In a worship service devoted to Rumi's poetry, guest musician Michael London brought his special passion for the Sufi mystic.

Each year our congregation celebrates the Mexican Day of the Dead as a way to reflect on what our loved ones who have died have brought to life in the world and to honor our multicultural commitment.

Our community worships weekly in our newly renovated sanctuary, a place of beauty and love where people of all ages and walks of life are welcome.

For the annual Day of the Dead celebration, our sanctuary was decorated with festive cut paper streamers from Mexico.

As a community, we bless a child's uniqueness and welcome him or her into our community.

We join with Unitarian Universalists throughout the state and other people of faith to stand on the side of love and protest the detention of immigrant families.

On Sunday, Oct. 18, we dedicated our Black Lives Matter banner as part of our ongoing anti-racism work. 

The flaming chalice is the symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith, embodying the fire of commitment and power of community. This sculptural interpretation was hand-crafted for our congregation and is displayed on the front wall of the sanctuary.

Each June Unitarian Universalists gather to worship, learn, and prioritize social justice initiatives. The General Assembly kicks off with the banner parade, with youth delegate Schuyler Osgood carrying our church banner this year.

Worship Services are held Sundays at 10:30 am. We offer Religious Education classes as well as nursery care for infants and toddlers.

 

In the event of inclement weather church closings will be posted here by 8am Sunday morning as well as on our church voicemail at 610-371-0928

Apr 9: Transforming the Heart's Desire - Rev. Sandra Fees
Many of us desire transformation of ourselves and our world. But being transformed is a mysterious, creative process that has a way of sneaking up on us and moving us in unexpected ways. How, then, can we achieve the radical transformation we long for?
