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. Sarah Schurr, who travels to Fairbanks eight weeks each year from her home in Oregon 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.
