Caregiving and Prayer

Caregiving

Caregiving takes many forms in our congregation, reaching out to one another and the larger community at times of need and seasons of change.

 

Called to Care

Our "Called to Care" visitors make scheduled monthly visits to members of our church community who might welcome a friendly face and a caring presence. The Called to Care team is supervised by our pastor and meets together as team once or twice a year for sharing and support. Called to Care visitors schedule their individual monthly visits at the convenience of their and their visitee's schedules. Visit assignments are communicated once a month. Typically, the Called to Care team welcomes and takes in new members in January of each year. To join the Called to Care team or request a visit, please contact the pastor at the church phone number listed below at the bottom of the page. 

 

Helping Hands

Helping Hands is a list of volunteers from our congregation who have signed up to offer occasional hands-on assistance to others, such as meals, rides or errands at times of convalescence or other needs. Our Helping Hands coordinator can be reached by calling the church office (508-529-3192). Helping Hands volunteer list is updated approximately once a year. Please click here for a sign-up form.

Prayer

Prayer Network 

We offer members, friends and the wider community the support of a large network of faithful people who have said they will pray with and for those who request prayer. Our Prayer Network is an email network of many dozens. Upon receiving an email request for a specific prayer need, our Prayer Network members have promised to hold needs in prayer on the spot. To join the Prayer Network or request a prayer, contact the church office at the phone number at the bottom of the page or email UPPrayerNet@gmail.com.
