Members of the Caring Circle offer kind, practical, tangible efforts to other church members who may be experiencing significant joys, concerns, sorrows, or changes in their lives.
Monthly Coordinators follow up on Joys and Concerns expressed in Sunday worship, as well as notices from the minister or other church members, about short-term circumstances that may need attention. Other Caring Circle members serve by providing phone calls, greeting cards, rides to church events or medical appointments, and help with meals and/or pet care during a member’s period of recuperation.

The Caring Circle can use your help — for just one time or on a regular basis — whatever works for you. Having a lot of Caring Circle members allows us to help many without burdening anyone. Contact CaringCircle@OrlandoUU.org and let us know which services you might be able to offer.
You can join our Google Group email list so you’ll know of needs as they arise. Then, if you’re willing and able, you can participate in a meal train (by taking a meal to a homebound member) or drive someone to a doctor appointment, etc. If you’re ready for a bigger commitment, you can serve as one of the monthly Coordinators. Please join us!
Are you concerned about the storm season? Caring Circle has developed a preparation checklist, storm safety and recovery information, and ways in which Caring Circle can respond. For further information, contact Cindy Schleier at CaringCircle@OrlandoUU.org, as she is the coordinator for this project.
