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.

UUFF ANNUAL MEETING

Lay Leader: Cam Leonard

The Annual Meeting will happen immediately following a shortened Sunday service. Lunch and childcare will be provided. Come hear updates from the Board and our committees, weigh in on proposed bylaw changes, elect Board members and otherwise exercise your vote in our democratic congregation!

May Day Maypole

Lay Leader: Hayden Nevill, Dance Leader: Susan Grace Accompanists: Laurel Holmes, Rebecca Dunne, Ryan Bowers, and Larry Fogleson

We’ll have a short inside service followed by live music and dancing around the maypole. All ages are welcome. Join us afterwards for a Soup and Sundae Social to kick off our annual Stewardship Campaign. Pledge Stewards will be available for filling out pledge cards.

Earth Heroes and Heroines

Lay Leader: Susan Grace Speakers: Various UUFF Members

Join us as we celebrate Earth Day by coming as our favorite Earth Heroes! Come dressed as your favorite Earth Hero, with a short info statement about who you are, where you are from and why you are an Earth Hero! We will make time to interview and hear from all of you!  This is a very fun service and perhaps may draw some heated discussion between our attending heroes.  Last time we had a bit of challenge between John Muir and Sigrid Olson, due to opposing thoughts and philosophy on conservation.

Our Adventures in Malawi

Lay Leader: Doug Toelle Speakers: Marilyn Russell and Miriam Paquin

Miriam and Marilyn will tell us about their experiences in Malawi.  The offering today will benefit the Malawi Children’s Village inAfrica.  The school there has many needs.  Three students share one book, as they crowd into a two-person desk.  The dedicated teachers struggle with very limited resources.  The black boards are so scarred that they are barely legible. The money collected will help benefit the school and their hope for the future.

Environmental Healing: Restoring Community After an Oil Spill

Technological disasters like oil spills create significant emotional and sociological wounds. Community healing is particularly difficult when safety concerns restrict the participation of local residents in clean-up efforts. Involving local residents in caring for oiled wildlife strengthens community bonds and honors the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Lay Leader: John Peirce. Speaker: Hayden Nevill.

Lay Leaders: Ed and Laurel McLaughlin  Accompanist: Vera Alexander

The relationship between faith and madness, and how it affects world peace.
