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 part-time minister, Rev. Tracy Springberry, who travels to Fairbanks five times each year from her home in eastern Washington 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.

Thanksgiving Leftovers

Speaker: Mike Bonilla   Lay Leader: Cam Leonard

A Theology of Gratitude

Speaker: Jana Peirce Lay Leader: Lisa Sporleder

 Galen Guengerich, minister of All Souls Unitarian Church in New York City, believes gratitude or should be the defining religious principle of Unitarian Universalism. Adopting gratitude as a discipline—or daily practice—reminds us how utterly dependent we are on the people and world around us for everything that matters. From this flows an ethic of gratitude that obligates us to create a future that justifies a sense of gratitude from the human family and demands that we nurture the world that nurtures us in return. Today we will learn more about the idea of gratitude as a practice and an ethic, nurturing our own sens of awe and obligation.

Guest at Your Table

Lay Leader: Laurel McLaughlin

The annual UUFF support for the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee Guest at Your Table program begins on Sunday, November 13, with a multigenerational service.  The UU Service Committee advances human rights and social justice by partnering with citizens around the world, who are challenging oppressive policies in their own countries.  GAYT is the annual information and fund raising in which local congregations participate.
