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 interim minister, Rev. Beatrice Hitchcock, who travels to Fairbanks one week each month from her home in at the base of Sheep Mountain off the Glenn Highway. In between visits, she is available for consultation and pastoral care by phone and email. Other services are lay led or feature guest ministers, ensuring a diversity of topics and voices.

Winter Solstice Celebration

Coordinators: Jana Peirce, Laurie Walton, and Jeanne Olson

Drawing on both Native American myth and Euro-pagan ritual, this experiential service begins in darkness with drumming and chanting and ends in light as we weave together song and story to call down the sun. One of the most popular seasonal services at UUFF, this intergenerational celebration marks the passing of the darkest part of the year with special choral music, a candle lighting ritual and an appearance by Raven, the trickster.

Animal Spirituality: What the Interdependent Web can Teach Us

Making It Through the Holidays When You’ve Suffered a Loss

Speaker: Sally Fenno Lay leader: Susan Grace
