Mission

The mission of the Care Team is to provide support and encouragement to members of the congregation by tending to their emotional, spiritual, and material needs, and to cultivate a feeling of community among church members.

Care Team members will:

  1. Respond to requests for assistance when approached in person such as at church functions, by phone, personal e-mails, or by careteam@uucg.org.  We are listed in the church directory.
  2. Coordinate the 3 main activities of the Care Rings:  Crisis Care, Social Gatherings, and Engaging new members.
  3. Be attentive and respond when appropriate to Joys and Concerns expressed during worship on Sunday mornings and at other times.  (Send cards, make phone calls, visit people, etc.)
  4. Be visible and foster caring relationships with congregants and church groups.  We will help to cultivate a supportive, loving community.
  5. Communicate with congregants through the church newsletter (GNUUS), and church announcements or in other ways with regards to activities and topics related to our mission.
  6. Refer needs to the minister and/or outside resources when appropriate.
