First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

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.

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. 

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 21: Embodied Love - Rev. Sandra Fees

Our faith calls on us to embody love. Universalism's historic motto declares that "God is Love." This morning we reflect on how that calling to embody love shows up in our community and the world. This morning's service will include a Teacher Appreciation Ceremony and a special collection split between Berks Connections and Co-County Wellness.

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?
