A Rose in Wintertime
Rev. Dara Olandt and Members of Lay Pastoral Care Ministry

This morning we’ll highlight our Caring Network. We’ll celebrate the Lay Pastoral Care Ministry and share the ways in which this ministry is available to provide listening and supportive presence to UUCers when need arises. We’ll explore the hope possible when people accompany each other in purposeful, non-judgmental relationships. We’ll also ask “what are the barriers to asking for help in times of distress?”

Two Community-wide Support Groups for Mental Health

On the 3rd Monday of every month, all in our community are welcome to participate in either of two support groups. The first group is for family and friends of those with a mental illness, and the other group is for those coping with a mental illness themselves. Both groups meet from 6-7:30 PM. Come share your experiences with others, learn coping skills, find out about local resources, receive support, and more.
