Pastoral Care is for YOU!

Pastoral Care is the embodiment of the love we share for each other, encompassing times of need and joy. This summer, UUAA, has experienced an increase in life transitions and memorial services. We know that grief and loss can have a profound impact on health and well-being. But you don’t have to do this alone, Pastoral Care is here for YOU! If you are in need of additional support, please reach out to the Pastoral Care Team. Whether its connecting you with another congregant who is willing to listen or with a minister to support your spiritual health, we are here!

 

Our Pastoral Care Network

On Sunday, May 19th, 2019, the NEW UUAA Pastoral Care Network was introduced to the Congregation. This network approach combines the skills and strengths of the ministerial team and the congregation to provide assistance in times of need and joy. A key element of the network is congregant to congregant care (congregants offering help to each other). We  gathered the names and commitments during the service and will start creating a data base of care.  

theresa rohlck, Pastoral Care Coordinator, along with the Pastoral Care Team manage the system, connecting those who need help with those willing to assist. Pleae reach out to Pastoral Care if you need support.

The Pastoral Team looks forward to serving our beloved community!

Pastoral care is the way the community cares for itself.  It is the embodiment of the love we share for each other, encompassing times of need and joy. Pastoral care is the umbrella term for all the care we offer each other.  Many calls for short term pastoral care can be met , with effective coordination, congregant to congregant.  Other calls for care such as counseling for a serious medical diagnosis or loss of a loved one need to be met by a minister.

 

“At the heart of our caring is the willingness to be more vulnerable and therefore more fully alive than ever before. This is the power that keeps us returning day by day to the ever-changing journey of caregiving.”
