Lay Pastoral Care


Who might want Lay Pastoral Care?

Challenges come our way in life.  Some are pretty manageable. Others leave us feeling very alone and overwhelmed, or demand great contemplation.

Lay Pastoral Care can be available to offer sustained personal support to those enduring grieving, illness, injury, disability, marital changes, unemployment, relocation, care giving, isolation, inability to attend church or other difficult life situations.

Our ministers train and commission the Lay Pastoral Care Associates to provide an ongoing, caring, listening presence, spiritual support and hope in times of need.  This program is an example of our congregation’s mission statement, which includes – we care, in support of community.

How can I receive Lay Pastoral Care?

Call our ministers at 355-0777 or email pastoralcare@richmonduu.org.  This service is available to members and friends of the congregation. There are no fees.  This care is offered with strict confidentiality and under the supervision of our senior minister.
