This workshop has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 8.
Registration closed on October 6.
Among the many gifts of this religious community is the care that congregants offer one another — a visit or a listening ear in a time of distress, loneliness, discernment, grief, or celebration; a meal at a challenging or hectic moment; a ride to UUCC worship, congregational social activities, or a medical appointment; a note of support, encouragement, sympathy, or congratulations.
And while some of us have accepted very specific caregiving responsibilities — as clergy, staff, or volunteers in the Karuna Ministry Team and Caring Committee — the work of the caring community belongs to all of us.
That’s why we’ve inviting Rev. Lyn Cox to conduct Caring Congregation Workshop, open to all teens and adults in UUCC, on Saturday, October 8, 2022, from 9am to 4pm, with a break for lunch, which will be provided for all participants on the OBIC patio.
The morning session will focus on what it means to be a caring congregation. We’ll celebrate how UUCC already is a caring community and also explore hopes for strengthening that care. In the afternoon, we’ll focus more intently on individual skill-building for listening, caregiving, and boundary-setting.
So, whether you want to become an active caregiving volunteer in UUCC or simply want to strengthen your own skillset, please plan to join us on October 8th!
And don’t hesitate to be in touch with Rev. Paige Getty at email@example.com if you want to discuss your participation.
