What to Expect in Worship

Welcome

Welcome to Prairie Lakes Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.  It is our pleasure to introduce you to our fellowship.  We are a welcoming religious home to a diverse group of individuals.  We encourage you to explore our web site to discover what our fellowship and religion are all about.

Sunday Services/ENGAGE Sunday Programs

Our time together on Sunday mornings allows for reflection, exploration, meditation, and education.  Some weeks, we offer what some may consider a traditional service while other weeks a time for collaborative learning and working.

Prairie Lakes offers a more traditional Sunday service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.  While these services are primarily lay-led, occasionally they are led by a minister or college professor.

A typical 2nd and 4th Sunday service consists of:

  • words of welcome and announcements
  • musical prelude (time for centering)
  • hymns
  • lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith
  • sharing of “joys and concerns”
  • multigenerational “story for all ages”
  • thought-provoking readings
  • reflection based on the readings given by a minister, guest speaker, or a member of the fellowship
  • offering
  • fellowship conversation based on the reflection

On the 1st and 3rd Sundays, ENGAGE programs are organized by members and friends of the fellowship.  ENGAGE is an acronym for: Explore, No Boundaries, Gather, Activism, Go! Be the Change, and Educate.  The acronym defines the purpose of these Sundays.  These programs provide a time for attendees to participate in book discussions, documentary viewing and discussions, meditation training, social justice activities, preparations for fellowship outreach, etc.  These programs are open to all who are interested in learning more or wanting to become involved.

Sunday services and ENGAGE Sunday programs begin at 10:00 AM and are provided year-long.  Visit the Upcoming Services and Events page to view our scheduled topics and activities.  (Modifications to this schedule are subject to change.)
