The UUMC Congregational Care Team includes a ministry of person-to-person care. Following Christ’s directive to “send out laborers,” the team recruited and trained a group of “compassionate peers,” or Compeers, to begin the process of establishing and maintaining contact with church families.
The team’s mission is to assure that every member of the UUMC family feels loved, included, and supported year-round. The ministry has made significant progress toward realizing that purpose. Each Compeer serves a two-year rotation as the church contact person for 15-20 families. Through regular and intentional contact, Compeers share in the joys and sorrows of their assigned families and nurture each member’s connection to UUMC.
