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.

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

Apr 28: Wholeness: Roots and Wings - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

Roots keep us safe and grounded. Wings set us free. How can roots and wings together sustain and repair our wholeness? This morning we welcome new members into our religious community. 

May 5: Celebrating the Little Things - Coming of Age Candidates and Youth Group

This Sunday we celebrate our youth group in our annual youth-led service. The service is all ages, and children are encouraged to attend. In honor of the theme, “Celebrating the Little Things,” and in recognizing all of the small things that bring us joy every day, please dress in an outfit in your favorite color for service… head to toe, if at all possible! Whatever clothing makes you smile, whatever will make you feel comfortable, and whatever will add to our congregation’s rainbow, please wear it!     

May 12: Blessed Are the Curious - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

Henry David Thoreau said that if we don't keep pace with our companions perhaps it is because we hear a different drummer. How might we cultivate a sense of curiosity for the ways we each move to our own music?

May 19: The Gift of Doubt - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

For Unitarian Universalists, doubt is a holy gift and companion of faith. Join us as we consider how doubt, rather than certainty, fosters wonder, curiosity, and a sense of urgency.

May 26: Why? - Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees

Is there a big (or small) question you are grappling with right now? Do you wonder why the universe exists, whether animals have souls, if there is a divine source, what you are being called to do with your life, or whether to forgive someone? This morning we will reflect on some of the questions we are most curious about.
