Welcome 

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.

Be Ours a Religion

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.

Water Communion

Lay leaders: Laurie Walton and Hayden Nevill Music: Laurel Holmes

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.

Chocolate and Fruit Communion

Hafiz wrote the poem “We Have Come Not to Take Prisoners” in the 14th century. He said that our true purpose is to surrender to freedom and joy. This Sunday, we will play with this theme through story and song in an intergenerational service. Speaker: Rev. Tracy Springberry. Lay leader: Lisa Sporleder. Music: Laurel Holmes.

Celebrating the Summer Solstice: The Ant and the Grasshopper

Lay Leader: Susan Grace Accompanist:  Vera Alexander

We celebrate Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, joyfully in the beauty of this time together in community with love and light.

Hospitality as a Spiritual Practice

Lay Leader:  Marilyn Richardson  Speakers: Mark DeCorso, Dave Frey, and Susan Grace

Inviting visiting folks into your home and sharing your life for a few days can be a very spiritual and gratifying experience. Various UUFF members will speak of either giving or receiving hospitality.
