No matter what has drawn us to Unitarian Universalism, our need to belong to an authentic, supportive community is an appealing feature of congregational life. To feel that we are truly cared for by others comforts, strengthens and encourages us. At Shelter Rock, we attempt to nurture one another through all of the changes in our lives – during times of celebration as well as in times of need.
For help, please or call Rev. Jennifer Brower, Minister for Pastoral Care at 516. 472.2917. To volunteer, please the Assistant to the Ministers at 516. 472.2941.
