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 Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails, who joined UUFF in September 2015.  About half our Sunday Services are lay led or feature guest speakers, ensuring a diversity of topics and voices.

Unitarian Universalism in Times of Trouble

Speaker: Lisa Sporleder  Lay Leader: Jana Peirce Music: Vera Alexander

Some people may wonder if, when the chips are down, they might need a more dogmatic church, a place where they can find certainty. But Unitarian Universalism is there for you in more than just the good times. Our free faith also provides us with ways to deal with the troubled times in our lives.

Voices of Universalism

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay Leader: Cam Leonard Music: Marsha Sousa

Universalism refers to the progressive Christian concept of “universal reconciliation,” the belief that every single human beings will ultimately be “saved” and are loved unconditionally by the divine. What does it mean to be a Universalist today? This service will weave together the voices of universalists from across the spectrum of religious identity, including our own Universalist forebears.

Leaders: Molly Lemen and Silvia Daeumichen Music: Marsha Sousa

Te Jueh

Speaker: Tracy Charles-Smith  Lay Leader: Mike Walleri  Music: Marsha Sousa

Tracy Charles-Smith is the President of Dot Lake Village and adjunct faculty for University of Alaska Anchorage Neurodevelopment Center. She was raised in a very traditional home. Ms. Charles-Smith will talk about the concept of Te Jueh, an Athabascan concept similar to sympathy and empathy, and its role in Athabascan spiritual and social life.

Days of Awe

Leaders: Rev. Leslie and Molly Lemen    Music: Vera Alexander

“If you believe breaking is possible, believe that fixing is possible.” —Rabbi Nachman of Breslov

The ten days beginning on Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) and ending the evening of Yom Kippur, (the Day of Atonement) are described as “The Days of Awe:” a period for meditation on the year that has passed and a sacred opportunity to make amends, inscribing intentions for the year to come. This morning, we will reflect on the spiritual practice of forgiving and being forgiven — even extending the possibility of forgiveness to ourselves.

UUFF Auction is Coming

Ingathering

Coordinators: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails & Laurie Walton Music: Marsha Sousa

Let’s celebrate the beginning of the new Fellowship Year with our annual Water Communion service! Our tradition is to offer water as a symbol of our connection one to the other. This year there will be 4 periods of water sharing during the service. We may be sharing where the water came from — but perhaps more importantly, what this water means to you, what it symbolizes in our lives together. Please bring a small container of water from a place special to you, anywhere from your dog’s water dish to your favorite fish camp, deep in the wilderness.
