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 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.

Need Volunteers to Answer KUAC Phones

UUFF has signed up to answer phones at KUAC on Saturday, October 24, from 7:00 to 10:00 am. (Note: That’s the 2nd weekend of the pledge drive.) We’ll be looking for 4 people to take pledge calls. Contact us if you are interested. We’ll send a confirmation email in return with more information.

RE This Week

Remember to get your completed Registration form (if your child has never been registered in the RE program) or check that your Registration information is complete, as well as your child’s Safety and Behavior Covenant turned in to Bre or the RE table. As soon as I receive that information, your child will have a name tag to wear on Sunday mornings. Also, make sure to sign your child into the attendance notebook before services start so we have an idea of how many children will be in each class. Read on to find out what each class is doing this week. Read More »

This Sunday: Beware the Book!

“Books are one of the first places where knowledge and history are kept, and we go back to build on that knowledge and experience. To censor or block published word keeps society from possible growth.”  – Kimmetha Herndon

There is nothing quite like banning a book, or declaring it dangerous, to increase that book’s sales. Sometimes however, nobody notices and the banned book stays lost to a school, library, or community. Let us celebrate our right to the power of literature and make known the dangers that exist when restraints are imposed on access to information in a free society. Presenter, June Pinnell-Stephens. Lay Leader, Jeanne Olson. Accompanists, Laurel Holmes & Susan Grace.

Silent Auction ends at Noon Sunday

Sunday, October 4th at noon is the end of the current silent auction. The October table will feature tableware, baskets, etc. If you have anything to contribute, please bring it into the office. November’s table will feature jewelry. We thought it would be a good pre-holiday gift finding offering.
