Coming Events:

8/1/14 Celebration of Life for Pat Morgan

It will begin at 3pm in the sanctuary and a reception in Fellowship Hall will follow.


The work party Aug. 2, from 10am to 2 will concentrate on the garden move, and tearing down the arctic entry wall and the south pony wall at the top of the stairs. Then the stairs will be widened. There will be lunch for the workers in Fellowship Hall at noon.

If you email the office at ubcoffice@universitybaptistchurch(dot)net to let us know you will be here, we can be a lot more accurate with the food. But if you forget, just show up ready to work at 10am, 8/2!

Work Parties will continue each Saturday till freeze up (unless finished sooner), but will only last 4 hours each time, at the most, 10am to 2pm. Each workday will have a specific project to finish. If you can help provide some food for the workers, contact Jennifer Cox.

NOTE: With the front entry torn up, we are now using the upper ramp to enter the building.

8/3/14: Bible Study for all ages is at 9:45am. Gary Cox will bring a sermon on "The Good Samaritan" at 11am, and "The Friend at Midnight" in the 6pm service. After the morning service, please stick around for a short bluegrass concert provided by “Birch Root Revival”: Chelsea Umphlett, Colby Wright, Jeanine Smith & Josh Smith! Light refreshments will be served.

Meantime, our youth will be eating lunch downstairs. After their meal, they will be leaving for a bike scavenger hunt, followed by ice cream treats at Hot Licks. Youth should bring their bikes Sunday morning, and money for their treats. Parents can pick up their teen at the church around 4pm.

University Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist church at 1197 University Avenue, Fairbanks, Alaska 99709 was established in 1959. Our pastor is Gary Cox, who joined us in September 2000 with his wife, Jennifer and three sons.

Sunday Worship times: 9:45 a.m. for Sunday School (all ages), 11 a.m., and 6 p.m.

What to Expect Sunday:

Our Sunday Services are at 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. All blend traditional elements and hymns with some more contemporary choruses. Over the course of a month, you can expect to hear a mix of congregational singing, choir, ensembles, trios, instrumentalists, and solos.  There is no rigid dress code, though evening services tend to be more informal. Services last about one hour. There is also Preschool Worship (age 4-K) every Sunday in room 210. Bible Study for all ages begins at 9:45 a.m. The church has a "cry room" equipped with closed circuit TV of the services, as well as a nursery for birth through age 4 during all services. All nursery workers (paid or volunteer) have passed background checks. In the evening, during the 6 p.m. service, Mission Friends meet (for age 4-K) in room 210, and CA's for grades 1-6 in room 311.

The congregation itself is a mix of ethnicities from all walks of life. While predominately "anglo," we have a Chinese Mission, with outreaches to the Philippines and Africa. Church members include African-Americans, Filipinos, & Koreans, to name just a few.

We have complete church information available by phoning 907-479-2440 and surfing our menus when the phones are on "auto attendant." Extension 502 will take you to special announcements, and 503 will give you regular weekly events, for example. Our staff page gives staff extension numbers.
