Caring is something we all know about. By virtue of our humanity, we all have times when we need care from others and times of wanting to care for others.  The Caring Committee provides us with opportunities for caring interactions:

The committee does not replace the pastoral work of the minister. Instead, it complements that work and increases the ability of our community to respond to individual needs.

Caring Committee is an important part of the church because by caring for each other we create a strong community.

WHAT IS THE CARING COMMITTEE?

Caring Committee organizes the network of members who supplement the minister's pastoral work by keeping in touch with parishioners through visits or by phone, providing transportation or emergency child care, sending notes or greeting cards, weeding a garden, offering a meal in times of illness or helping with shopping or errands.

HOW CAN I RECEIVE HELP?
