Due to concerns about COVID-19, Prairie is currently holding online services via Zoom each Sunday at 10:00 AM with a virtual coffee hour afterward. See the calendar below or on the front page for links to the service.

When it is deemed safe and we start meeting again in person, our 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.

  • Service: "The Invisible Stage of Life," by Robin Proud
    January 24, 2021  10:00 am - 11:15 am

    Being older in America can mean you are passed over in stores, ridiculed in the media, and discriminated against in the workplace. If you also are female, non-white, or non-heterosexual, you are further erased. Paying attention to the marginalized can improve life for all of us.
    We'll be joining the Free Congregation of Sauk County's service this Sunday. Go to Sauk’s website at 10am to get the link

  • Service: "Listening Deeply - Befriending the Mind-Heart" by Rev. Doug Kraft
    January 31, 2021  10:00 am - 11:15 am

    Self is a traveling companion. What we really are is a mystery. Yet, how we relate to the sense of self can deepen our lives and heal those around us.This morning we’ll explore three simple practices: (1) Turning toward whatever life presents, (2) Relaxing into any tension, and (3) Deepening to reveal the subtle sources beneath. Eventually deepening becomes savoring.These are the Buddha’s core teaching and essence of a Unitarian Universalist spirituality.
