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: "What is Your Legacy?" by Laurel Ravelo, Valerie Showalter, Lailah Shima
    April 25, 2021  10:00 am - 11:15 am

    Listen to a group of Madisonians who are mobilizing co-conspirators to inject seed funding via a Black owned company, Madison Roots, LLC, for the purchase of both rental property and homes. Through this investment, we are supporting Madison Roots’ strategic goals and ongoing work to amplify Black home ownership and wealth. This presentation will share about this work and also about a generational wealth workshop that we are offering in the community. We will also share some of our understandings and knowledge about generational wealth that have affected our drive to do this work.

  • Service: "Disability Dissemination During the Pandemic" by Mitchell Hagopian
    May 2, 2021  10:00 am - 11:15 am

    As Wisconsin grappled with potential resource shortages as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic it turned to its State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee and its subcommittees to help the Department of health Services develop ethical principles and priority groups for receipt of vaccine and therapeutics. The exercise exposed the problems people with disabilities face when it comes to accessing medical care and demonstrated the continuing need for advocacy in order to assure equal access.
