GNUUC is a family oriented congregation. Our smaller size fosters community. We all know each other and all of our children and youth. Inter-generational Fellowship is important to us. The Fellowship Group supports social based events such as our annual Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas Eve dinner, Lunch Hour, Annual Retreat, and Pickin’ Parties.
The David Frese Caring Committee Workshop will be held on Saturday, May 18th from 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. (including a continental breakfast and pizza lunch) here at GNUUC. This is a wonderful tradition at our congregation and is committed to providing informative and helpful pastoral care workshops for our congregation. Plan to join us to learn all about the Affordable Care Act--what is included, when it takes effect, and how to enroll and take advantage of this expanded health care plan. Our resource presenters will include Brad Palmertree, Interim Executive Director of the Tennessee Health Care Campaign and Beth Uselton, Program Officer, Baptist Healing Trust, among others. This is open to the public, so please invite friends, neighbors, and colleagues. (Download Flyer Here)

The Pastoral Care Lay Ministry program
is an extension of our congregation's pastoral care, and works with
and under the guidance of the Minister. They strive to provide a
ministry of hope and caring so that no member or friend of our
congregation need be alone. The team assists Dan in home and hospital
calls, support for persons in life crisis, maintaining contact with
those unable to attend church due to illness or disability, support
for members involved in care-giving and offering comfort to the
bereaved. Our Pastoral Care Lay Ministers are Sandy Blanz,
David Frese, Mike Morgan, and Sarajane Powell.
