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.
