Circle of Caring
This congregational ministry is creating and strengthening caring connections within this community and providing a secure network of care for everyone in our church family. The Circle of Caring is designed to supplement individual and family support systems during times of challenge by offering acts of care such as sending a card, providing a meal or treat, giving rides as needed, making a visit, and doing handy chores. Since the responsibility for caring is shared by everyone in the congregation, the burden is light and the tapestry of communal ties among us is greatly enriched.
A Pledge of Care: During Lent, everyone in our church family is asked to make a pledge of care. Pledges are for individuals, not families, and may be changed at any time. A pledge communicates what act(s) of care you are willing to offer to members of your church family, and how often (weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually).
Act of Care Options: Send a card, provide a meal or comforting treat, make a visit, do handy chores in someone’s home, provide a ride.
