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.

Gilbert & Sullivan On Religion, Magic and Ethics

This Sunday, we meet Rev. Sarah Schurr who will be a minister in residence at UUFF for the next several weeks. Rev. Schurr says she loves to preach and lead worship.

Atheism

This Sunday: Dale Guthrie will present an alternative natural explanation for the origin of empathy, morality, love and art that differs from the supernatural ones.  Dr. Guthrie is a retired UA professor of biology. He teaches classes on atheism for OLLI (Osher  Lifelong Learning Institute).  In his UU talk he will reflect on Ice Age information and how we compare with other animals.

Humor Sunday

This Sunday: A sense of humor may be essential to the enjoyment of life.  Humor can relieve stress, enhance relationships, and possibly increase energy.  Laughter
is a gift that allows us to keep our hearts light, even at the most difficult of times.  Today several members of the congregation share what tickles their funny bone.  Lay Leader: Larry Fogelson. Accompanist: Vera Alexander.

Libby Roderick Concert postponed

The bad news is that Libby’s September 11 book signing event in Fairbanks has been cancelled, so we are rescheduling her concert for later this fall, probably October or November. The good news is that we may be able to get her for both a Saturday night concert and a Sunday morning service, with a book signing afterward. We are also looking for a date that has fewer conflicts with events involving both UUs and PFLAG members (the concert will be a benefit for both our organizations). If you would like to help with this event, please contact us or speak with Brian Rogers or Jana Peirce.

Water Communion

This Sunday: Today we celebrate water, which connects and nourishes us all. Bring a small amount of water (actual or symbolic) gathered from your summer activities for our annual Water Communion ceremony. Many of us travel or adventure at home during summer; all have new experiences to share. Lay Leader, Laurie Walton. Accompanist, Marsha Sousa.
