2019 Canvass Kick-Off – Cancelled

Service Cancelled for 3/3/19

Dear Prairie members and friends,

The timing and cold of this snow storm is predicted to leave the roads treacherous tomorrow morning, with the snow still falling, so it seems best to cancel our service. We will move our Mardi Gras canvass theme and pancake breakfast to next Sunday, March 10.  Stay warm and join us next Sunday!


Please join us for our Grand 2019 CanvassMake Dreams Come True – we’re celebrating in true Mardi Gras style!

Kick-Off: Make Dreams Come True – we’re celebrating in true Mardi Gras style!

There will be a Mardi Gras parade – ALL AGES are encouraged to don a costume and participate! Traditional Mardi Gras parade costumes include fairies, woodland/mythical creatures, clowns/jesters, and animals. Evening gowns and tuxes – with masks – are also appropriate. Simple purple/green/gold attire is welcome, too. Of course, all of this is optional – spectators will receive a supply of beads to toss. There will be a prize for best costume! If children/youth are especially enthusiastic, costumed stuffed animals and small “floats” made from little red wagons are often seen on the streets of New Orleans!

Make Dreams Come True! Kim Rebecca-Murray, Janet Stevens and Rev. Jann Halloran will lead us in a service in which we recognize our church’s accomplishments and imagine together the dream of Prairie this year and going forward.  The Prairie Band will provide special music.

The service will be followed with a traditional Mardi Gras pancake and King Cake breakfast during Fellowship.

Purple stands for Justice; Gold for Power; and Green for Faith — All ages are welcome to join Melissa Bishop and Rev. Jann Halloran for activities around our church during during Learning Hour at 11:35 am.
