About 

The UUFF is a Unitarian Universalist fellowship founded in 1956 to provide a place to share and explore liberal religious values in Interior Alaska. UUFF is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) of North American congregations, and the Pacific Western Region of the UUA. We are a self-supporting congregation that governs itself on democratic principles and seeks consensus on major issues.

Our Mission 

UUFF is an inclusive community that encourages religious freedom, nurtures spiritual and ethical growth, celebrates diversity, and promotes a just, sustainable, and peaceful world. (Adopted April 2009)

A Welcoming Congregation 

rainbow-chaliceWe are a welcoming, open and affirming congregation, a place where people of all races, religious backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender expressions are welcome to come just as they are. In 2007, members of the Fellowship voted overwhelmingly to become an official Welcoming Congregation.

UUFF advocates locally and statewide to affirm and protect the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Alaskans. The Fellowship hosts Gender Pack, a peer2peer group supporting transgender and gender nonconforming people in Fairbanks and Interior Alaska. Nationally, the Unitarian Universalist Association has been a leader in supporting LGBTQIA+ and Gender Justice, most recently through the Side with Love campaign.

Sunday Services 

The fellowship meets at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings. Our Full-time Minister is Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails. When Rev. Leslie is not leading our services, they are led by lay members of the fellowship or by guest speakers from the community and visiting ministers from other UU fellowships in Alaska, Canada and the Lower 48.

Our worship services are normally diverse, and you can expect to hear many voices speaking on a variety of topics over the course of the year. Our services feature guest speakers, visiting ministers, facilitated discussions on spiritual and social concerns, and dramatic presentations. Music and ritual are always a part of the worship service. Seasonal services include an outdoor Advent garden, the traditional UU flower communion and the Maypole celebration.

Worship services last 60-75 minutes and are followed by a social gathering with coffee and refreshments. Childcare is available for toddlers and preschoolers, and Religious Exploration classes for older kids during the service. Although we do not currently offer infant care, parents are welcome to bring babies to services where a crying room is available if needed.
