The needs and concerns of our PrairieUU community are coordinated through PrairieUU’s Caring Circle. This group helps facilitate support for individuals and families going through life changes, including illness, a death in the family or other loss, or a significant anniversary or celebration. Our Caring Circle has many dedicated members who make hospital visits, provide meals, send cards and notes, make phone calls and provide rides to church and doctor’s appointments. Our congregation is divided into Geographic Caring Circles based on home zip codes (north, east, south, west, and central) so that we can best identify neighbors who might be more able to help someone, especially with a meal or ride.
Candles of Community
The foundation of our community is built on caring for each other. We learn about many of our congregant’s needs in Candles of Community during our Sunday services and via our Candles of the Community request form. You are invited to complete the following form if you or someone you know is in need.
Living Well with Mental Health – This group is open to anyone who suffers from any kind of mental illness or for those who care for others who have any kind of mental illness.
Other support groups, such as a Grief Group, a Parenting Group, and a Divorce Group, have been offered over the years. PrairieUU supports our members as they create small groups to meet their needs.
