CARING CIRCLE

UPCOMING EVENT

Brief Luncheon/Organizational Meeting
After the Sunday Service on Oct. 13, 2019
The Assembly Room in the Enrichment Center from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm

All Caring Circle members and anyone interested in knowing more about Caring Circle are invited.

We will enjoy lunch, take a group picture, discuss hurricane prep, new ideas, and answer questions. Bring your questions and ideas, (and laptop if you would like any help with navigating the member directory and/or our “Meal Trains”).

WHAT WE DO

Members of the First Unitarian Church of Orlando’s 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.

DO YOU NEED HELP?

Please contact Caring Circle at CaringCircle@OrlandoUU.org

CAN YOU HELP OTHERS? 

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!
