First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County

seek ... nurture ... serve

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.

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

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. 

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

Nov 11: The Remembering Self - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

Memories can define us and set us free. They can also limit our ability to see other perspectives and keep us from being able to reframe our own narrative. Join us this morning as we reflect on how memory helps and sometimes hinders us in creating who we are as a people and as individuals. Our offering today will benefit the Reading Public Library.
