Reach Out. We'd love to hear from you.

Congregational Care members provide prayer, compassion, and companionship to congregants experiencing illness or disability, recovering from surgery, facing a major life challenge, seeking a more conscious living/dying process, or simply needing reassurance and hope. Each team member brings a prayerful awareness of divine wholeness and affirms peace, faith, and order in the midst of major life changes.

In difficult and demanding times such as a critical illness or other traumatic change, people may experience high stress and reduced ability to cope. At these times the help of others may be very valuable. Family members and friends can be of key support; the presence of a person less directly involved can also be very helpful.

If you or someone you know at Unity Renaissance is in the hospital, homebound, experiencing a loss or illness, in hospice, or confined to a nursing care or rehab facility, and would like a personal visit, please contact the church at (757) 420-5280 or fill out a Congregational Care request form and place it in the prayer box on the table in the Narthex.

Your request will be given to Rev. Paula Mekdeci to share with the Congregational Care Team. Members of the Congregational Care Team are available to visit congregants in person once permission has been received. They are available for:

Hospital visits

Home visits

Nursing home or rehab facility visits

Hospice visits

The Congregational Care Team recognizes that each person is on their own spiritual journey. We honor that journey and assist others in remembering the Truth of who they are: unique expressions of God, divinely guided, and cared for.
