Clicking for a Cause

We are a group of knitters and crocheters who meet regularly for fellowship, spiritual growth, and service.

COVID-19 update: Clicking for a Cause is currently meeting twice a month via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month for fellowship.  If you would like to join us, please contact Heather () for the Zoom link. 

We are in the process of reaching out to the organizations we provide items for, so that we might start our donation effort back up at some point. We are also developing a new model for how we can assemble our shawls and blankets as a group in this time of social distancing and campus closure.  We will share that information via email and eNews.

Care Ministry Table

During Coffee Hour after most Sunday services, you are invited to visit with ERUUF Pastoral Care Associates. You can send a card to someone with a joy, sorrow or milestone, and you can see the beautiful items created by Clickers.  This is also a time when you can speak with one of the Associates or the Consulting Pastoral Care Minister about your caring concerns. 

Care Teams

When an ERUUF member with a serious health issue needs on-going support, a calendar is created to coordinate people who are willing to help in specific ways. This team of volunteers will work closely with the member and family to help meet their needs. More about Care Teams
