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 Jarzabski, 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.

Gift of the Magi

This Sunday: Our program will be a presentation of the “The Gift of the Magi”, a short story written by O. Henry in 1906. The story is about a young married couple and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money.

Solstice

This Sunday: On this Sunday before Winter Solstice, we’ll acknowledge dark and welcome returning Light in a multi-generational program of readings, candle lighting, singing, and dancing with Raven and special guests. Children of all ages are then invited to carve out a snow angel (weather permitting) and come back in to warm up with hot chocolate, apple cider and Yule.

Native American Spirituality

This Sunday: Speaker Bob McGuire & Soaring Eagle Drum This program will explore Native American spiritual experience, through the performance of the Soaring Eagle Drum, an inter-tribal powwow drum group that does Northern and Southern style powwow and traditional Alaskan Native songs.

Sanity Sunday

This Sunday: On October 30, 2010, The Rally To Restore Sanity was held on our the Mall in our  Nation’s Capital to bring attention to the polarizing extremes in our country’s political and social life. Sponsored by comedians, the Rally sent a message consistent with several UU principles. Members of the fellowship are urged to bring signs to demonstrate their support for the inherent worth and dignity of every person, justice, equity and compassion in human relations, and our acceptance of one another. Lay leader, Kathryn Dodge.

The first Sunday of the month is Low Carbon Sunday/Recycling Communion.

Dreaming the New American Dream

This Sunday: The American Dream as we have known and practiced it in the U.S. for the last several decades threatens the very livability of the ecosystems on which we all depend.  Progressives across the country are starting to “dream a new dream”.  What should that new dream look like?  Join the conversation! Speaker: Libby Roderick.  Lay Leader: Brian Rogers.

Why We Fight: Armistice Day/Veterans Day Reflections

The Great War, “the war to end all wars,” officially ended on the 11th month/day/minute nearly 100 years ago. What did we really learn? Why do we still have war?
