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.

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: Dave Frey and Marilyn Richardson Speakers: Eve Southiere, John Peirce, Phil Osborn, and Dave Frey
