Share the Love: Angels on Call

Angels on Call is a ministry within LAUMC that provides opportunities to give or receive care. This ministry has been around for a while, and it’s getting a reboot! If you have some free time and a car, volunteer as an angel to help someone get around, or to bring them a meal. Angel volunteers are “on call” to be notified when someone who is ill or recovering needs meals, or make themselves available to those who don’t drive—giving rides to LAUMC services or events, doctor’s appointments, running errands, and similar requests as available. Angels could even grocery shop for someone who is housebound! If you are interested in providing services such as these, or if you or someone you know would benefit from an angel, contact Coordinator of Senior Adult Ministries Megan Carroll (650-948-1083). Please complete volunteer application.
