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.

Each June Unitarian Universalists gather to worship, learn, and prioritize social justice initiatives. The General Assembly kicks off with the banner parade, with youth delegate Schuyler Osgood carrying our church banner this year.

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.

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 classses 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 4: Back to the Garden - Joanna Groebel


"In these times of change and challenge how can we cultivate our relationship with the natural world in a true and authentic way?  This Sunday we will explore some accessible aspects of nature as a source of revelation, as teacher, and as reflections of our true nature.  This will be a time of restoration through ceremony, reflection, and gratitude."
