Shepherd Groups

Shepherd Groups–caring for one another in the church.

Every member and friend who wants to join a shepherd group, may join a shepherd group for support and encouragement along their journey. We currently have six shepherd groups. Shepherd groups are a great way to get to know other RUCC folks better in a smaller group setting. Shepherd groups currently meet quarterly to talk with each other and to see how everyone is doing. Groups usually meet at the church or sometimes in a person’s home for a potluck and good fellowship.

Shepherd groups are also responsible for fellowship hour each Sunday after worship. Each shepherd group is given two separate months of the year to provide for the setup, cleanup and refreshments for their assigned month. This is another great way of getting to know more people within your group and to strengthen your friendships.

Each group has a shepherd leader who oversees their flock and is the first point of contact should a concern arise. Shepherd groups ensure that no one “slips through the cracks” of our care and concern. Shepherd groups will help with special needs of the people in their group such as preparing meals, providing transportation to medical appointments, helping with cleaning projects, or whatever else someone might be temporarily unable to do for themselves.

Contact the church office if you’d like to participate in a shepherd group.
