First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

Our new chancel sculpture - shown here in development -  is called the flaming chalice. It is the symbol of our Unitarian Universalist faith, embodying the fire of commitment and power of community.

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.

During worship and at other church-related programs we light the chalice, the symbol of our Unitarian Universalist faith. This one was crafted by one of our youth for the church auction.  

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. 

Our congregation works with local and statewide partners on immigration justice, including a Dec. 6 Immigration and Race Forum. 

Worship Services are held Sundays at 10:30 am. We offer Religious Education classses 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
