Service is an important part of living our UU faith. At UU Berks, we have a number of opportunities to serve our community.
Sunday Moring Coffee Crew:
A pillar of our fellowship is our coffee hour following service. Our coffee crews brew coffee, share treats and help with clean up. Coffee crew volunteers generally serve every 6-8 weeks. It is a great opportunity for new comers to meet people and get involved with a minimal time commitment. Email us to join a coffee crew
