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.

Beyond the (Digital) Veil

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails   Music: Marsha Sousa

The Celtic festival of Samhain celebrates the brief moment in time when the worlds of the living and the dead are close enough to touch. This service of spoken word and ritual will be an opportunity to experience communion with our ancestors and friends who have passed. Join us in celebrating those who have passed before us as we adapt this time-honored UUFF service to the virtual worship space.

Spiritual First Aid

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails   Music: Marsha Sousa

What can I possibly say to someone who is grieving? How can I help when the world’s problems feel overwhelming? Rev. Leslie will put on her “chaplain hat” and answer your questions about how to provide Spiritual First Aid to our loved ones, strangers — and ourselves. Send questions you would like Rev. Leslie to answer to minister@uuff.org.

Deep Listening

With Rev. Leslie and Eric Muehling

When we tell our story from deep inside,
And we listen with a loving mind,
And we hear our voices in each other’s words,
Then our heart is in a holy place.
STJ #1008 “When Our Heart Is in a Holy Place”

When was the last time you cleared your mind, shut out the clamor of the world, and listened to the message of your heart? This service will help us to cultivate deep listening — to ourselves and others — as a spiritual art and healing practice.

Blessing of the Animals

Leaders: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails and Molly Lemen     Music: Marsha Sousa

Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, Unitarian Universalists gather once a year to celebrate the creatures who accompany us through life. Whether they walk, swim, hop, crawl, scamper, or fly, your animal friends are welcome to join us via Zoom for a special service of blessing, or you can submit a photo or video to Rev. Leslie in advance at minister@uuff.org .

UU the Vote

With Rev. Leslie and UUA Speakers

Community is at the heart of democracy. Housing, food security, health and self-determination are the pillars of a thriving community. COVID-19 has thrown more folks deeper into preexisting crises that threaten lives and democracy. This service — part of a national project of the Unitarian Universalist Association — will equip us to side with love and justice this election season.

Labor of Love

With Rev. Leslie and Cam Leonard

Economically, spiritually, physically, emotionally — we have our work cut out for us in 2020. Whether it is the work of your heart or the work of your hands, whether it is seen and recognized or takes place in private, your labor is your gift to a world in need of its blessing. Lay down your burdens for an hour and join us for words, music, and ritual in honor of Labor Day.

Hope in This Moment

Minister: Rev. Leslie  Music: Marsha Sousa

When writer and climate activist Naomi Klein agreed to address the 2020 UU General Assembly, she could not have imagined she would be doing so in the midst of a global pandemic. Nor could she have anticipated that she would be filled with a renewed sense of hope, and an unshakable belief that previously impossible things may be on the brink of the possible. Rev. Leslie will share part of her lecture with us, and thoughts on the courage to be found in this moment.

This UU Life: Awakening

Speakers: Jana Peirce, Eric Muehling, Laura Volmert. Music: Marsha Sousa, Lisa Sporleder. Digital Ushers: Brian Kassof, Eric Muehling.

Join us this Sunday for a service exploring the journey to self-awareness that many have been on since the Black Lives Matter movement started in 2014. Three members of the UU Fellowship of Fairbanks will share reflections on what has helped them get past barriers in their own thinking about racial injustice, transphobia, and other issues of systemic and internalized bias in our culture and ourselves. How can learning history help us come to new understandings about the present? What should we do when we are trying to be an ally but are told we are “doing it wrong”? How might our awareness and acceptance be challenged if our own child comes out as trans? The journey to awakening is not one that has an endpoint and we all won’t take the same path, but we can share those guideposts with each other that have helped us overcome stumbles and continue with more confidence.
