The mandate of the Pastoral Care Committee, in partnership with the Ministry Team, is to coordinate pastoral care visitation to members of the congregation (and other United Church of Canada people living in our communities). The Committee encourages and supports home, hospital, and institution visitations, while providing a nurturing environment for both the visiting volunteers and those being visited.
Its core values are: confidentiality, and being supportive, responsive and nurturing.
Activities and groups supported by the Committee include:
- the Prayer Circle;
- delivery/mailing of bulletins and other church communications;
- “You’ve Got a Friend” calling tree;
- Spirit Yoga;
- Prayer Shawl Group; and
- providing monthly reports to Council, an annual budget to the Finance Committee, and a report for the OVUC Annual Report.
