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.

Poetry Sunday

Speakers: Various UUFF Members/Friends Lay Leader: Cam Leonard

The theme is “Poetry: The Worship of Words.”  All in attendance are invited to share a favorite poem with the congregation.

The Upside of Quitting

Speakers: Janie Magelky and Lane Delventhal Lay Leader: Mel Sikes

Most of us hear early on that it’s not good to be a quitter. But whether it’s a religion, a job or a life dream, sometimes we come to learn that quitting is the best thing we can do for ourselves or others. This is the third and last service in our series, This UU Life. For each service, UUFF members share wisdom and insights hard won from personal experience. Previous services have explored what happens when we leave our comfort zones or when we let go of something we’ve been holding onto for dear life. Join us this Sunday to hear about the upside of quitting.

Grace and Power

Speaker: Nancy Hanson Lay Leader: Doug Toelle

Grace and Power: Are these two words antonyms, synonyms or two unrelated words? Is grace a power? Power often seems to have a negative connotation to it. Why? Grace is a warmer word than power (for me anyway) and yet Grace seems hard to grasp and define and perhaps even harder to know within oneself. Through discussion might we end up with Grace being a Power or Power being an aspect of Grace.

Thank Heaven, We Have All Been Mothered By Someone

Speaker: Rev. Beatrice Hitchcock Lay Leader: Marilyn Richardson

For some, Mother’s Day is a joyful day of celebration of a woman they love and appreciate. For others, Mothers’ Day is a complex day of emotions: longing for what never was, anger at mistreatment, hope for what might still be, resignation to what was, remorse for their part in estrangement, compassion for her pain, determination to do better, acceptance for what is always less-than-perfect… Recognizing the good and the bad of this essential relationship, all who have mothered, or been mothered, will be honored at this service.

In Beloved Community

Speaker: Rev. Leslie Jarzabzki Lay Leader: Cam Leonard

Members and friends of UUFF describe this community as a sanctuary, a safe place, a source of strength and renewal. What can we accomplish together that we could not as individuals, both within this fellowship and out in the wider world?
