The Caring Committee provides short-term support to UUCC members and friends in various ways. Some Caring Committee volunteers provide rides for medical appointments and church activities. Others help with the receptions following memorial services, setting up, cleaning up, and/or providing food for the guests. Volunteers are rarely requested more than once a month.
In addition to the myriad informal social activities and opportunities available at UUCC, we have UUCC-sponsored meals and activities throughout the year which the Fellowship team supports. These include the Sunday morning coffee hours, In-Gathering Pot Luck, Auction Dinner, Fellowship Dinner, and the Annual Meeting Pot Luck.
If you would like to support one or more of these activities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We provide a friendly welcome smile to everyone who comes on Sunday mornings, and we help orient Visitors and newer Members where and when to go for services and/or RE classes. For more information about volunteering on Sundays, visit this page: https://uucolumbia.net/more/volunteer-on-sundays/.

At UUCC, pastoral care is provided by ordained clergy and by volunteer laity. Members of the congregation may call on one of the ministers for pastoral counseling in times of crisis, discernment, grief, or whenever the perspective of a professional minister would be helpful. Karuna Caregivers are a lay team of trained pastoral caregivers who are available as listeners in times of transition, sorrow, illness, grief, celebration, or joy.
