Hurricane Matthew interrupted BBUUC’s ICARE* House Meeting schedule. Nonetheless, 18 BBUUC congregants have joined the BBUUC ICARE Justice Ministry so far. The final House Meeting is scheduled for 8:30 AM on Sunday, October 30. For anyone wishing to learn more about ICARE at any time, contact ICARE@BBUUC.org and you will receive a prompt response, especially if you include your phone number.

ICARE’s Research Kickoff will be held on Tuesday, November 15, 6:30 PM, at Arlington Congregational Church, 431 University Blvd., Jacksonville. This is the best time of the year to become a participant in researching and implementing solutions for the citywide problems discussed at the House Meetings and Community Problems Assembly. Issues this year include the Homelessness Resource Center, Restorative Justice for Youths, and Wealth Building in Northwest Jacksonville. While especially for ICARE Network members, all are welcome to attend. Contact ICARE@BBUUC.org for more information.
