How to Make a Prayer Flag

Sign up to make your own contribution to the UUCS Prayer Flags for Our Hopes and Dreams Project! Sign up for a time to make your flag in the sanctuary from Saturday, December 19 through Saturday, February 6. This window may be extended by appointment. The Sanctuary will be open by appointment only on Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday evenings for members and friends to visit in safe groups to participate in the UUCS Prayer Flags for Our Hopes and Dreams project. Here is a video on the process and our collection of prayer flags so far.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in the UUCS Prayer Flags for Our Hopes and Dreams Project! If you are not comfortable visiting the sanctuary at this time, we are happy to mail a blank prayer flag canvas and instructions to your home! You may create your flag at home and return to the church by February 6, 2021. Email Lily Walker at to make arrangements.

The UUCS Prayer Flags for Our Hopes and Dreams will be hung in the sanctuary on February 13, and be a featured in the February 14 pledge drive sermon, and February 20 pledge drive event.

Take some time to meditate upon Hopes and Dreams for yourself and our congregation for the upcoming year. Consider arriving at your appointment or starting your flag at home with an image, theme, guiding metaphor or quote in mind. Doing so will make the creative process much easier!

For those making their flags in the sanctuary, note these details: [make bullets?]

Appointments will be monitored by an employee of the church, and staged with a one-hour break between visitors to allow time for the area to be sanitized, and the HVAC system to recirculate the air in the Sanctuary between groups. Masks are required, and a temperature check will be conducted before participants are allowed access to the Sanctuary.

Prayer Flag canvasses, fabric paint, fabric markers, and a variety of stencils will be available in the sanctuary for community use.

If you experience cold or flu like symptoms within a 72 hour window of your appointment, contact Lily Walker at to reschedule.
