The Caring Committee Area Leaders work discreetly with network volunteers to reach out to members and friends of our church community when a there is a short-term need due to illness, hospitalization, death or new baby arrival.
As people experience these transitions the Caring Committee is notified by Rev. Nancy, Membership Director Carol Oates, Executive Director Sandra Selvitelli, or by word of mouth.
With the help of many volunteers, the Caring Committee can provide services including meals, rides, sending cards, including the Sunday churchwide card, and help with pets if needed.
The Pastoral Care Visitors Committee is a subset of the Caring Committee and we work closely together. The Pastoral Visitors Committee is a ministry of presence and support by regular visits to those in need on a long-term basis by laypersons selected from our congregation.
We would love to get more volunteers and appreciate our congregation‘s input. If any of you knows of a situation where the Caring Committee can help or bring comfort or congratulations, please notify the church office or one of our area leaders listed below.
