Caring for each other

Caring Team

We are a caring and loving religious community. Part of our commitment to one another is to care for each other in our time of need. Everyone’s life experiences ups and downs. The Caring Team meets the needs of those in our congregation who would benefit from a meal during difficult times. Sometimes nothing says you are held in love quite like a warm casserole.

If you would like to sign up to make a dish sometime during the year, please contact our church office to be put in touch with our Caring Team lead office@uucnh.org. If you feel called to help in this way, please do so! We need your help to make sure everyone is cared for.

If you have a need, or know of someone in our congregation who is in the hospital, has had a baby, is dealing with grief, or anything else that the church would like to reach toward with love, please contact our minister, Rev. Don Rollins, minister@uucnh.org.

Lay Pastoral Care Team

The Lay Pastoral Care Team works with and supports the minister’s pastoral ministry in reaching out to all members and friends of the church. We support those who are adjusting to change, loss, illness or death. We share in moments of celebration and happiness. We reach out to those who are unable to get out and who would like a visit. We share in situations that require a special touch of human kindness and an open ear. Lay Pastoral Care Team members are trained to be a caring, listening presence, but not to counsel, perform therapy or offer advice.

In all our contacts we remember the importance of confidentiality. The Lay Pastoral Care Team members will continue to be in contact with the minister regarding important information and, unless requested otherwise, will share information with each other in order to benefit from mutual insight and support. Beyond this, all information imparted to the Lay Pastoral Care Team members will be treated with the same confidentiality that applies to the minister or as mandated by law.

So we encourage you to contact the minister (minister@uucnh.org) or any of our Lay Pastoral Care Team if we might be of help or comfort. We count on the congregation to keep us in touch with pastoral needs of our community.
