First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday, our congregation continued its work to become an anti-racist, multicultural community by reflecting on racism in our midst. 

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.

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

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

Jun 3: The Blessings of Belonging - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees
This morning we explore the ordinary blessings of our lives. Acknowledging these everyday blessings can remind us of the wholeness and beauty already present in our relationships, within us, and in others. And that may just offer us a greater sense of belonging and connection.
Jun 10: States of the Heart - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees
John O'Donohue says, "The state of one's heart inevitably shapes one's life." What is the shape of your heart right now? Is it courage, fear, heaviness, love, forgiveness? Join us today as we explore blessings for these times of confusion and possibility. The collection is our special month collection for Co-County Wellness.
Jun 17: Homecomings - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees
Home represents shelter and love, but not always. It comes too with its share of pain and uncertainty. What might it mean to practice what John O'Donohue calls "the art of homecoming" and to come home to ourselves?  
Jun 24: Recognizing Our Own "Paradise in Plain Sight" - Lauren Fritz, Worship Associate
We will come together and draw from the wisdom of Karen Maezen Miller, getting in touch with the abundance of life teachings available to us in our everyday lives, with the right attention. We will draw from her very real experiences of rejuvenating a Zen garden, motherhood, and the act of doing simple laundry. From her perspectives as a woman, mother, partner and Zen Buddhist priesr, we will encourage more fearlessness, forgiveness and self-acceptance within each of our own lives.
