Sunday Worship Services at PCUUC - 9:00 AM
About Sunday Services
Worship Services are the cornerstone of Prairie Circle Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Services are offered every Sunday at 9:00am in the main sanctuary of the Byron Colby Barn. Directions here.
The mission of Worship at PCUUC is to provide services that are inspirational, intellectually challenging, and in keeping with the 7 Unitarian Universalist principles.
Great worship services affect our hearts, minds, and hands - they move us emotionally, teach us, and inspire us to take action. Although we are all touched by different experiences, PCUUC strives to offer an assortment of worship experiences that appeal to the range of personalities within our congregation, and across a range of theological perspectives.
PCUUC, currently a lay-led congregation, provides services offered by members, academics, guest ministers from various Unitarian Universalist churches, the local UU seminary and theological professionals from other faiths. They utilize their skills and viewpoints to speak to social, spiritual and religious topics. Recent speakers include members of the congregation, an art therapist, and two UU ministers. Speakers address spiritual implications of topics for the individual and the community.
Strengthening our UU values and assuring that these values are passed on to the next generation are some of the benefits families receive from attending church together. Below you will learn about 2 different services we offer at PCUUC to strengthen our families and our values.
All Family Services are held periodically and children and youth are encouraged to attend along with the adults. These services are designed for all ages, and often take place near a holiday, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter. There are no religious education classes on these days. Busy bags and activities are available for children on the back table
Multi-generational Services are held once a month (usually the 3rd Sunday) and we welcome our children to participate in the service. These special services are a time for us to reflect on the important role young people play in our congregation - that we learn from them just as they learn from us. We are grateful for their energy, their enthusiasm and the way they see the world. There are no religious education classes on these days.

2019-2020 September-May Religious and Spiritual Worship Themes
The Worship Committee is looking forward to an interesting, evocative, and affirming year ahead. Each month the Committee, along with Ministers and invited speakers focus our worship services on particular themes. The committee has received feedback that congregation members would appreciate a bit more attention to spiritual/religious themes, thus the themes for the coming church year are as follows:
September – Ritual
October – Soul
November – Forgiveness
December – Mystery
January – Reincarnation
February – Grace
March – Faith
April – Karma
May – God
If you would like to provide a sermon in a particular month, or if you know of someone you think would be especially relevant to a monthly theme, please contact the Worship Committee and let us know your interest. Members of the committee are also available to help with feedback and suggestions regarding your sermon prior to delivery.
Mike Merritt is the Worship Chair and Eric Foote is the Worship Coordinator.
