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 members serve in 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.
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 more 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.
