Because UCN is a congregation with a part-time minister, a Lay Pastoral Care Team offers its help and support in times of difficulty for any UCN members and families. The member volunteers of this Care Team have experience and training in supportive listening, and understand the importance of a support network for every UCN member. Within our Beloved Community, we stand by each other so none among us falls.

When requested, UCN’s Lay Pastoral Care Team members are prepared to be someone to talk with, to listen to you, and to hear you without judgment, without an agenda, and without trying to fix things.

In addition, the Care Team support network finds volunteers to provide short-term assistance to members and families in the church who are in need.

If you or someone you know might benefit from supportive listening or the support network, contact the Lay Pastoral Care Team at
