Welcome to First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County!
SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES 10:30AM - Followed by coffee hour
May 5 - Boundless Goodwill
Rev. Sandra Fees, Elizabeth Kaufmann, Director of Religious Education, Sage Olnick, Student Minister, and Ann Hossler, Director of Music
The idea of deeply loving all beings is noble, ambitious, and also sometimes misguided. An attitude of goodwill may offer a more realistic and helpful way to express our desire for the happiness of all beings. Join us as we consider the distinction between love and goodwill.
May 12 - Love Abundant
Rev. Sandra Fees, Matt Owen, Worship Associate, Sage Olnick, Student Minister, and Ann Hossler, Director of Music
This morning we celebrate the abundance of love. What is the source of an abundant love - our parents, our friends, the divine? How can we align ourselves more fully with the comforts, promises, and glory of Love Abundant?
May 19 - Coming of Age: Traditions and Perspectives
Elizabeth Kaufmann, Director of Religious Education, UU Coming of Age Class, Barry Groebel, George McNulty, and Ann Hossler, Director of Music
Coming of age rituals are part of many cultures and religions throughout the world, marking the movement out of childhood. Many of us may remember participating in confirmation, bar or bat mitzvah, or more secular milestones like getting a driver's license or voting for the first time. What does it mean to come of age (particularly as a Unitarian Universalist)? Several of our high school students have been considering this question throughout the year and will share their credo statements with us. Today’s collection will benefit Concern Special Needs. The Spring congregational meeting will follow the service.
May 26 - Ordinary Bravery
Rev. Sandra Fees, Randy Newnham, Worship Associate, Elizabeth Kaufmann, Director of Religious Education, and Linda Blazer, Pianist
While bravery is often associated with great acts of courage, it is also part of a great spiritual tradition grounded in selfreflection and inner wisdom. How can we develop genuine confidence in ourselves, even while the world around us is in disarray, so that we can live our everyday lives with conviction?
