Clicking for a Cause

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

Our mission is threefold:

  • To create comfort and warmth for our community through gifts and donations crafted from needles and yarn.
  • To encourage needle workers to transform the rhythm of knitting and crocheting into a spiritual practice.
  • To promote Unitarian Universalism through our donations and by opening our activities to needle workers seeking community.

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
