We are welcoming, open and affirming to all. Our services begin at 10:30 a.m. Sundays. Religious exploration for school-age children and childcare for preschoolers are available from September to May. Learn more about us and what happens Sundays at UUFF.
Our growing Unitarian Universalist fellowship is led by a part-time minister, Rev. Tracy Springberry, who travels to Fairbanks five times each year from her home in eastern Washington and is available for consultation and pastoral care between visits as well. Other services are lay led or feature guest ministers, ensuring a diversity of topics and voices.
What is a blik, you ask? A blik is not the name for a new nano particle. It is an unfalsifiable conviction – a core belief that informs one’s worldview that cannot be proven wrong. We all live with bliks, and competing bliks can damage communication and get in the way of understanding. What is your blik? Come this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. to find out more. Speaker: Hayden Nevill. Lay leader: Marilyn Richardson. Piano: Laurel Holmes.

This year we will be starting a new Sunday service series called “This Unitarian Life.” Each service will feature 3 speakers from the fellowship sharing personal stories or reflections on the same topic. Future topics include “Letting Go” and “The Upside of Quitting.” Contact Jana Peirce if you would like to be a speaker. “Comfort Zone” – Part I of This Unitarian Life “Leave the familiar for a while Let your senses and bodies stretch out Like a welcomed season.” – Hafiz. The theme this week will be “Comfort Zones.” Our three speakers will each tell us what happened one time when they stepped outside their comfort zones and how it changed the way they viewed themselves.
Speaker: Rev. Mark Springer (via video) Lay leader: Mel Sikes
The Sunday morning service at GA this year was powerful and moving. We will be showing an edited version of this service. Calling upon his experiences in interfaith organizing, the Rev. Mark Stringer, Minister of the First Unitarian Church of Des Moines in Iowa, considers what gets in the way of UUs being “a religion which, like sunshine, goes everywhere” and inspires us to more often be the religion that reaches out in love.

Multigenerational Service. The annual water communion is an opportunity to symbolically and spiritually gather, reconnect and renew our UUFF community. Bring water from your travels, your rain barrel or any other water that is of significance to you and participate in this multigenerational service. If you forget your water, we will be providing some.
