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.

Encounters With the Sacred: Our Stories and our Faith

Religion tends to put so much energy into making meaning of life. Perhaps we can gain more from making meaning FROM life. Peter continues an exploration of how personal experience is such a vital part of Unitarian Universalism. Speaker, Peter Pierson. Accompanist, Susan Johnson.

Beyond the Veil: A Day of Remembrance

During the Celtic festival of Samhain, when it was believed that the veil separating this world from the next was at its thinnest, people provided hospitality for dead ancestors. Even if you are not a pagan (or a pagan at heart), it is a good time to acknowledge loved ones who are no longer with us and keep them close through memory. Come slip behind the veil for just for a moment to light a candle in memory of someone who gave joy or meaning to your life. If you would like, bring a photograph or memento to place on the memory altar. You may share a brief detail that brings them back for you or light your candle in silence. Lay Leaders,  Penni Haskins and Shaun Lott. Accompanist, Laurel Holmes.

Unitarianism Begins I: Michael Servetus

In honor of the 456th anniversary of Michael Servetus’ martyrdom, we’re reposting this sermon which the late Rev. Frank Schulman deliverd at UUFF on Sept. 7, 2003:

Unitarian history is difficult to trace because we don’t begin with any one person. It can be traced back to Judaism and early Christianity. Modern Unitarianism, though, goes back to the early Reformation. It is an exciting story and it will unfold in two sermons. First, though, some background. Read More »

Join the Green Sanctuary Movement

Green Sanctuary resumes. That’s re-zooms, not reh-zoo-mays, in case you were wondering.  With the upcoming world-wide attention on October 24th, 350 Day (see www.350.org), it reminds us that we have no time to waste.  The Green Sanctuary Committee will reconvene for their first meeting of the season on Thursday, October 29th, at Gulliver’s Second Story Cafe back room at 11:30 AM.  We welcome new, interested planet-lovers to join us for a strategy-storming session on how to kick-off our UUFF efforts this winter.
