Congregational Care

IMG_20140126_112805
The Mission of BMUC Congregational Care Ministry is to demonstrate God’s love by providing Christian care to those in emotional, physical or spiritual need. We intend to provide this care by listening, praying and offering spiritual support and comfort.

Congregational Care Ministry is available not only to members and friends of BMUC,
but also to the local community as well.

Church of the Resurrection

BMUC’s Congregational Care Ministry began in February of 2013, with 5 members of our congregation who traveled to the Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City for training. Our CCMs are a dedicated team of caring women and men. All of the CCMs have completed 50 hours of Stephen Ministry training, as well.

The CCMs meet once a week for their own continuing spiritual development and mutual support, and provide many additional hours in prayer, visiting our ill and shut-ins (including providing communion at Piedmont Gardens Retirement Community), offering support at memorial services and follow-up for bereavement. They are involved in occasional supportive programs (such as grief workshops) and special prayer services.

If you would like the Congregational Care Ministers to pray for you, please send an email to us. (See Contact tab at top.)

The Congregational Care Ministers continually seek to expand their work beyond the walls of BMUC, and share God’s love and comfort in many places.

If you are interested in becoming a CCM, please contact Rev. Naomi.

Interested in Pastoral Visits?
If you would like a congregational care visit from the pastor or one of the CCMs, this is how it works. If we are aware of someone in the hospital, both the pastor and someone from the CCM team will make every effort to visit. If someone is at home, PLEASE REQUEST a visit — you can make this request to Rev. Naomi or one of the CCMs. We will not automatically assume that people at home would like a visit.
