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.

Seeing Ourselves Through Others’ Eyes

Lay leaders: UUFF Search Committee Music: Marsha Sousa

A mirror can show us what we look like, but not how others see us. This year the Search Committee had the task of taking an unflinching look at our fellowship, and describing ourselves as honestly as possible, having faith that ministers would see in us a congregation they could love. Join us to hear how we came to see ourselves reflected back through others’ eyes.

Meet our Candidate

Rev. Leslie Jarzabski

It is with great joy that we present Rev. Leslie Jarzabski, our Candidate to be UUFF’s first settled minister:

Dear Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fairbanks,

From the bottom of my heart:  I am thrilled and deeply honored to be your candidate for your first settled minister.

I hold a Master of Divinity from the Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, California. Currently, I am serving as a chaplain for the emergency department, trauma, transplant, and pediatric services at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, VA. Journeying with people as they wrestle with the big questions – What gives my life meaning? And how will I live out that meaning in the world? - is the work that makes my heart sing.

During my precandidating weekend, the members of your search committee and I envisioned how we might develop a transformative ministry together. Soon it will be my privilege to meet each of you and learn about your dreams for the future of your fellowship, and the change you desire to manifest in the world.

 I have included a selection of photographs, videos, sermons, and other media at ReverendLeslie.com that will help you get to know me and Jason, my partner of nine years, as well. Although my precandidating weekend was our first time in Alaska, the beauty of the Fairbanks area and the genuine kindness of the people we met there have stolen our hearts.

This is going to be an incredible adventure for all of us. I can’t wait to be with you.

Peace, Rev. Leslie

Easter…Jesus and the Hero’s Journey

Speaker: Rev. Beatrice Hitchcock Lay leader: Rebecca Dunne

This Easter sermon will examine the life, death, and rebirth of Jesus as it compares to the hero’s journey in classical mythology. Referencing Joseph Campbell’s The Power of Myth, the Rev. Beatrice Hitchcock will present the hero’s journey as the journey that each of us, in our own way, is called to undertake.
