Sometimes, you need to know: Someone cares. Someone will listen. You do not need to struggle through difficult times alone.

Our congregational community provides care for each other through our caring ministries, which supplement the natural network of family and friendship at UUCP. The roles in providing pastoral care are shared between the minister, whose role includes pastoral counseling and spiritual presence, and the members of the congregation, who create the beloved community of support through their caring actions.

Our caring ministries include:

Lay Pastoral Care

Trained Lay Pastoral Care Associates provide members and friends an extension of Rev. Christine Dance’s own pastoral care presence.

Unicare

Congregation members and friends respond to requests for assistance with cards of support, meals, transportation, and other resources.

Friendship Partners

Friendship Partner volunteers extend the ties of community to members and friends unable to participate fully in UUCP activities.

Memorial Services Support

Volunteers help with the setup and reception associated with a memorial service conducted by the UUCP minister or other celebrant.
