Called to Care

The Federated Church provides a ministry of lay care-giving based on the UCC Called to Care program. Trained volunteers provide visits and phone calls on behalf of the whole church to be a caring presence in others' lives.

Volunteers visit members of our church family who are home-bound or partially restricted from participation in worship and other events in the life of the church. Called to Care ministers are also on call for pastoral care when the pastor is out of town. All conversations and information will be held in strict confidence.

Called to Care ministers roles include: visiting with those who worship with us for the first time; to be a presence with persons facing life changes, health difficulties, grief or other challenging situations; and to follow up with persons after pastoral emergencies.

To request a contact from a lay visitor, or to suggest someone who might appreciate such contact, please call the church office: 589-1153.
