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.

We will be joining our siblings in faith at the Anchorage Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for their Sunday Service on Zoom. This service will take place at 11 AM.
During WWII, many of our Native Americans contributed to the war effort by creating code that used their language. It was a patriotic and valuable gift that unfortunately, was not recognized for years.

Telling a New Story

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails  Music: Marsha Sousa

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” —Neil Gaiman

Each of us has a story to tell — about who we are, what animates us, what we believe to be possible or impossible. But some of the well-worn narratives we hold dear can actually hold us back. This service will explore the power of story to shape our past, present, and future in unexpected ways.

It’s Been a Mother of a Year

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Speakers: Various UUFF Members  Music: Marsha Sousa

… and we couldn’t have survived it without the wisdom of those who have gone before us. In honor of Mother’s Day, Rev. Leslie has invited several UUFF members and friends to share knowledge they inherited from their maternal relatives and ancestors, or from anyone who has mothered them throughout their lives, that has helped them to thrive during one of the toughest years in recent memory.

A Theology of Rest

Minister: Rev. Leslie Fails  Music: Marsha Sousa

With the promise of long summer days and golden-hued midnights on the horizon, let us reflect on the liberating power of naps. For those of us who have grown up believing that our value is determined by our productivity, what spiritual lessons might the humble nap teach us? This program will draw from the deep well of wisdom that is The Nap Ministry, a project founded by Tricia Hersey to spread the good word that “REST IS RESISTANCE”

Kindness as a Spiritual Practice: Small Group Ministry Style Service

Coordinators: Jana Peirce and other small group ministry leaders

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel said, “When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I’m old, I admire kind people.” Novelist George Saunders writes, “Kindness is the only non-delusional response to the human condition.”

Do you agree or disagree? What role does kindness play in your personal philosophy? This Sunday, we’ll explore what it takes to be kind in a world where kindness is not always on display. How can we live among each other in fellowship and take each other’s perspective when that is often the hardest possible thing to do? For part of our service we will break into smaller groups to give people an opportunity to share what helps them nurture kindness in an unkind world.
