Comprehensive List of
Past Sunday Programs
1967 to 2021
This listing of Prairie programs from the society's beginings to the present is searchable for program speaker and title using Control F or Command F. Digital copies of available cassette tape recordings of full services made between 1984 and 2010 (with a few from 1976) are available on request. This feature is under development and is temporarily marked with "f_" in the Endnotes column. That last column also provides links to orders of service when available. These became routinely available starting in 2012.
