First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

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.

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.

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.

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

May 28: Embodied Grief - Rev. Sandra Fees

Do you embody or deny the pain you feel - the loss, the disappointment, the anger? How can acceptance and living into grief provide healing for body and soul?

Jun 4: Zest for Life - Rev. Sandra Fees

Zest seems like a lighter note on which to approach summer's arrival. Yet zest invites us into a deeper reflection on how to seize joy even in the midst of uncertainty, chaos, and brokenness. This morning's service will include a reflection by Dan Matz who is celebrating his tenth year as a member. We will also officially welcome our newest church members. 

Jun 11: All Ages UU Flower Communion Celebration - Rev. Sandra Fees

This year marks the 95th Anniversary of the original Flower Communion ceremony in Prague. Our children will lead us in a song, and we will all receive a flower to represent the diversity and uniqueness of each person. Please bring a flower to share in the service. This is our share-the-plate Sunday and will benefit SPECTRUM. The church picnic is being held at noon at Colony Park Playground in Wyomissing.

Jun 18: Companions in Joy - Rev. Sandra Fees

Who brings you joy? And who do you bring joy to? This morning we explore the relationships that bring excitement and zest into our lives.
