Q. What do people wear to church?
A. Typical dress at Prairie is very informal. Wear whatever you are comfortable in. We are not a “dress up for church” kind of congregation.

QWhat kind of people will I find at your church?
A. Freethinkers of all sorts. Come and see for yourself!

Q. How large is your congregation?
A. We have around 100 adult members, about 50 of whom will be found attending a typical Sunday morning program.

Q. What goes on during your Sunday morning program?
A. We are a lay-led congregation with a consulting minister. The program format can vary depending on the presenter, but we make a point of including time for discussion. Typical Sunday service elements can be found here. Speakers address a wide variety of topics based on UU principles.

Q. What is the role of the consulting minister?
A. The minister is understood to be a professional serving with the people of the congregation to further the purposes of the congregation’s ministries. He or she is responsible for preparing and presenting the Sunday Program up to one Sunday each month.
