Rev. Meighan Pritchard is delighted to be serving as pastor at Prospect Congregational UCC, first as interim minister from March 2012 - June 2014, and as settled pastor effective July 1, 2014.
Meighan received her master of divinity degree in 2010 from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California. In 2011, she served as sabbatical supply minister at University Congregational United Church of Christ in Seattle. Prior to seminary, Meighan was an editor, an elementary music teacher, a church handbell choir director, and administrative support at Seattle Symphony for both the education department and the Seattle Symphony Chorale. In 2006, she joined CrossWalk America to walk from Phoenix, Arizona to Washington, D.C., talking about progressive Christianity as articulated in the Phoenix Affirmations. The book Asphalt Jesus, by Rev. Dr. Eric Elnes, and the film Asphalt Gospel, directed by Scott Griessel, document this trip. A year at Sightline Institute, a sustainability think tank, sharpened Meighan’s desire to work on environmental challenges from within the faith community. She currently serves as environmental justice curriculum trainer with the United Church of Christ.
Meighan’s position is half-time. The best days to reach her are Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Please call her at the church (206) 322-6030 or e-mail pritchardmeighan at gmail dot com.
Pastor Meighan is on sabbatical July-September 2021. We look forward to welcoming her back in October! During this time we welcome Sabbatical Pastor Amara Oden.
