First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

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

Standing on the side of LOVE at the Reading Pride Celebration.

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.

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

Sep 30: "Be Thou My Vision" - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

UUs bring many names for God, and no name. In this morning's worship service, we'll consider how we envision and name the divine.

Oct 7: Sanctuary: Refuge or Risk? - Rev. Sandra Fees

Sanctuaries are intended to be places of welcome and shelter. What happens when a refuge for some is unwelcoming to others? 

Oct 14: Companioning as Social Change - Rev. Sandra Fees

Companioning means being present, listening, and bearing witness to another person's struggles without trying to fix things. This morning we'll explore the ways that companioning supports the pastoral needs of those who are grieving and in pain, and also leads to social change.

Oct 21: Sanctuary for LGBTQ - LGBTQ Caucus

The LGBTQ Caucus will explore the theme of sanctuary in the context of Coming Out. The offering will benefit Reading PrideFest.

Oct 28: Intergenerational Dios de Los Muertos - Rev. Sandra Fees and Cesar Martinez-Garza

Join us in an all ages celebration of the Mexican Dios de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). A colorful altar and beautiful banners give expression to the lively character of this tradition. Members and friends are invited to bring mementos and photos of their loved ones who are no longer with us to place on the altar, and to light candles.
