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.

 Answering the Call, Part 2

Speaker: Trina Bailey Lay Leader: Hayden Nevill

Let’s continue the conversation about white supremacy in our faith, our nation, and the world. With open eyes and hearts, we will work together to become the faith we are called to be.

The Shared Pulpit

Speaker: Holly Blood  Lay Leader: Laurel Holmes

On this morning, our own Holly Blood will share a sermon that emerged from her work in “The Shared Pulpit,” a course on sermon writing for lay people that was held at UUFF in the spring.

In Defense of Evil

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay leader: Cam Leonard

What good is evil? How do we reconcile our UU theology with the presence of evil in the world? Our own intrepid minister will lead us on an excursion into these questions, illuminated with examples of infamous science fiction villains. Come prepared to confront the forces of darkness in and around us.

Climate Hope and Action

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay leader: Lisa Sporleder Music: Laurel Holmes

“It is my experience that the world itself has a role to play in our liberation. Its very pressures, pains, and risks can wake us up — release us from the bonds of ego and guide us home to our vast, true nature. For some of us, our love of the world is so passionate that we cannot ask it to wait until we are enlightened.” —Joanna Macy

Drawing inspiration from Joanna Macy, this morning we will talk about how to face “this mess we’re in” head on with courage, resilience, and hope.

Rumi’s Birthday

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay leader: Mel Sikes

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” –Rumi Mavlana Jalaluddin    Rumi was a 13th century Persian poet, Islamic dervish, and revered Sufi mystic, one of the world’s most beloved spiritual teachers. In honor of his 744th birthday, we will immerse ourselves in his poetry.

Shared Harvest

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay Leaders: Molly Lemen and Silvia Daeumichen

We’ve enjoyed the tastes, smells, and sounds of the farmers market and our gardens, now drawing to a close as winter approaches. Join us for a celebration of summer’s abundance with stories and songs for all ages.

We will be taking up a collection of produce and canned goods and non-perishable food for local organizations that provide support to people experiencing food insecurity, so bring what you can to share!

Water Communion

Leaders: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails and Laurie Walton

Each year as we gather in the fall, it is our custom to offer water as a symbol of our connection one to the other. This year there will be 4 periods of water sharing during the service. We may be sharing where the water came from but perhaps more importantly, what this water means to you … what it symbolizes in our lives together .

Please bring a small container of water from a place special to you, anywhere from your dog’s water dish to your favorite fish camp, deep in the wilderness.

The Trajectory of our Faith

Lay Leaders: Jana Peirce, Marsha Sousa, and Hayden Nevill

Join Jana Peirce, Marsha Sousa, and Hayden Nevill as they share messages from our recent General Assembly in New Orleans.

There will be a special collection at this service for the UUSC’s efforts to assist the folks affected by Hurricane Harvey.
