PSUC responds to COVID-19
Although the provincial government has moved to Phase 4, at Prairie Spirit we will not be finalizing the report from the Ad Hoc Committee until early September. The Oversight Council, under the direction of the Prairie to Pine Region, created an Ad Hoc Committee which is developing protocols and procedures for gradual re-opening of Prairie Spirit United Church. Some of our building partners and rental groups have expressed interest in returning and since their numbers are typically under 25, we have made arrangements to accommodate their requests while honouring government direction and our PSUC protocols. Essentially, the building continues to remain closed until further notice. This includes the suspension of in-person worship services and all mid-week groups/meetings.
While our church building is closed, staff will continue working from home. Our minister Rev. Paul DuVal is away for the month of August. Emails and voice messages are being monitored regularly. To contact the church office, email email@example.com or call 204-832-1000. To leave a voice message, please press 1.
We have begun posting a daily reflection on our website. These posts will provide an opportunity for daily reflection and prayer as we look to respond to all that is happening around us. It is important that we draw near to God for wisdom, comfort, and strength and respond as our faith would call us to respond – to be compassionate to those who are suffering or fearful, to be generous to help where we can, and to be discerning and share our faith with those who are looking to God for answers.
Online Services in August
For the month of August, we will be taking a break from our online worship services and online coffee time. We encourage you to check out online services at St. Charles Headingley.

Prairie Spirit United Church is a newly amalgamated community of faith in St. James, a suburb in the city of Winnipeg.
Our Mission Statement
Prairie Spirit United Church is an inclusive community of faith, walking the path of Jesus as we worship God. We do this by engaging with our community, by offering our gifts to aid where we can, and by telling our faith stories to all generations.
Prairie Spirit United Church is looking to call a minister as our interim period ends. This ministry profile is being prepared to enable us to transition from our current interim ministry to a call for a permanent minister to commence July 1, 2020.
Prairie Spirit United Church is now using Mailchimp to send a weekly email update as we seek to improve communication within our community of faith.
