Sundays

Our Sunday morning services begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 11:15am. Services are led by invited guest speakers or by individuals from our congregation. This is an example of a typical service. Several participatory services are Prairie favorites. You will find a wide variety of topics and perspectives presented, as shown by the past program listings on the Calendar below. We also have recent Recorded Services.

Guest speakers are presenters from outside Prairie membership. They are invited to speak at a Prairie Sunday service by the Program Committee. They speak on timely issues which can be related to the UU principles.

Soup Sundays (currently on hiatus)

Join us after the Sunday Service on the third Sunday of each month to share food and sit down together for lunch and fellowship. We usually have soup, salad, and some kid-friendly things like hot dogs and mac and cheese. If you’d like to bring something to share, please let the Chair of the Hospitality Committee know. If you’d like to donate a few dollars in lieu of bringing an item, that is welcome.

Bakery Sundays (currently on hiatus)

Every other month, on the second Sunday of the month, bakery items are sold after the service by Just Bakery, a program of Madison Urban Ministry. The program trains folks who have barriers to getting jobs in a 16-week culinary arts program and then assists them in getting hired in the food industry. Proceeds help support the program.
