The Pastoral Care Ministry at UUCC Glen Allen is a vibrant part of congregational life, and a vital part of maintaining connections in our faith community. This ministry is made up of several unique but cooperative components:

1. Our minister is available to provide pastoral care when needed.

2. The Care Committee is lay-led and operated. The committee meets on a regular basis (approximately monthly), to assess the effectiveness of the Committee’s outreach (see #3). An additional focus of these meetings includes the opportunity for committee members to participate in continuing education and skill development on providing care within a congregation.

3. A community-based network of neighborhoods (by zip-code) utilizes a monthly Care Coordinator, as well as a contact person in each zip code to activate other congregants in the same zip code to provide pastoral care to a neighbor in need. Examples include sending cards, offering meals, making phone calls of support, providing child care and visitation or transportation, and whatever else is needed.
