PSUC responds to COVID-19

Although the provincial government has moved to Phase 3, at Prairie Spirit we are finalizing the report from the Ad Hoc Committee prior to making any further changes. 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 are making 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 available. Emails and voice messages are being monitored regularly. To contact the church office, email PrairieSpiritUC@shaw.ca or call 204-832-1000. To leave a voice message, please press 1. 


Daily Reflections

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.


Worship Online

This Sunday: In Matthew, Jesus tries to instruct the disciples in the mysteries of God’s realm. The parable of the Sower contains important challenges to disciples about understanding, perseverance, and maturity.
