Congregational Care Resource Team

Please email the Board Chair if you’re interested in serving on this committee:

The CONGREGATIONAL CARE NETWORK is comprised of members and friends of MVUUF who have volunteered support and services to others of the congregation in times of need, crisis or grief. Some of the services they might temporarily provide are meals, child or pet care, rides, errands etc. Everyone who is willing to be called upon for help is a member of the CONGREGATIONAL CARE NETWORK.

Congregational Care Resource Committee

The CONGREGATIONAL CARE RESOURCE COMMITTEE is small group of volunteer members. When they hear of a need for help they refer to the Congregational Care Network forms which members have been asked to complete specifying how they can help. The Committee can then identify the appropriate volunteers for each purpose and connect them with the person in need of assistance. In certain instances where particular attention seems needed, the CONGREGATIONAL CARE RESOURCE COMMITTEE can provide a comfort shawl, hand-made by members of the congregation.

The minister has at their disposal a discretionary fund which allows them to issue emergency funds. Contact the minister with questions about this fund.

Calling all Knitters

The Congregational Care Resource Committee is sponsoring a KNITTING WITH A MISSION project asking folks who knit and crochet to create Comfort Shawls for our members. Comfort Shawls can bring warmth and comfort for people experiencing loss, illness or celebrating a significant milestone. Knit or crochet a comfort shawl on your own or meet with the group that occasionally gathers at the Fellowship. We also encourage creating hats, mittens and gloves for Oasis for Youth. Donations of yarn are always gratefully accepted.
If you have questions or want more information about the Knitting With a Mission project or creating Comfort Shawls or the Knitting Clinic, please contact Becky at or 952-887-2146.
