Meals on Wheels - OFF SITE

Are you looking for a satisfying way to live our church's ideal of Connect, Grow, Serve?  Do you have a friend you would like to see regularly?  Are you seeking a way to participate in some meaningful community action? Meals on Wheels is for you!

Congregants from UUCA deliver meals on the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month. Many of us arrange to do a route with a friend, giving us a guaranteed time to be together to chat as we make our rounds.  Parents sometimes find this activity a good one to do with children, especially during summer break. When we do the same route for several months, we also get to know the clients, who nearly always seem grateful to converse with a visitor. We serve a diverse population of clients in South Arlington who live in single family homes as well as in high rise and garden apartments. They represent the ethnic and racial diversity of South Arlington, where people from over 100 nations live. Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer is a perfect example of an outreach activity that enables participants to Connect—with fellow congregants as well as the clients, Grow—in knowledge of and sensitivity to others, and Serve—in a very tangible and important way.
   
The time commitment is from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.  The meals are delivered to the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church at 601 N. Vermont St., with the driveway off Carlin Springs Road, a block from Ballston Common.  We go in teams of two, one driver, and one to run the meals in to the clients.  When you sign up, we ask you indicate which of these  you prefer, or say 'either' if it does not matter.

Tina Hinh and Sara Anderson
are the coordinators of the UUCA MoW volunteers.  Please contact us:  Sara: rayandsara@aol.com or 703-532-3830; Tina: tinahinh@gmail.com.  Email Sara and Tina to add your name to the volunteer list serve.

VOICE logoIf you have not yet attended a VOICE training in one-on-one relational meetings, now is the time to do it. This workshop is a chance to see how it's done, as well as learn about the larger relationship-building strategies that we are all working to strengthen.

This spring and summer, VOICE congregations will be pairing up with local ethnic communities, schools, other congregations, affordable housing complexes, and "outsider" organizations to build strength in our work and build big numbers for our 2017 push for election turnout and advocacy.  

For more details, and to let us know you're coming, contact David McTaggart, 703-835-6944, or Pat Findikoglu, patfindikoglu@gmail.com.

Fire Next Time book coverLiving the Pledge:  Sharing through Books
Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time

On the fourth Friday of each month, the Live the Pledge initiative will sponsor a discussion and sharing of books written by African-American authors. The first discussion on Friday, February 24, at 7:30 p.m., will be on James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time.  In his essays, Baldwin pictures white America as seen through the eyes of a black man.  Written in 1963, Baldwin reflects on the discontent of the times then; we will reflect on how that relates to now.  What is the same; what is different?

In March, we move into the 21st century and read about our current times in The Fire This Time, a collection of essays and poems compiled by Jesmyn Ward. Both books are available at Arlington and Fairfax libraries or on Amazon.  Please remember to use Amazon Smile to benefit UUCA.

 If you have questions or suggestions, please contact Pat Findikoglu or Linda Lutes Corsoro.
