The United Church of Christ has been the church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. Together, we live out our faith in ways that effect change in our communities. We have inherited a tradition of acting upon the demands of our faith.
At ERUCC, that means we’re taking some BIG steps to build for the future. Being active in our community is important. And, we want to continue to welcome the community with the best we have to offer: Housing the homeless, offering 12 step programs a safe and private space to meet, hosting Girl Scouts, encouraging children to explore their musical interests, hosting vigils on the front steps, training seeing eye dogs, and helping new groups organize around critical issues for today. There are dozens of others. Doing all of these things is who we are. It’s the right thing to do to make an impact in the lives of others. And, we know we can do better.
Yes, it’s a space that will work so much better for our church. That’s important. But, to know us is to know that being there for our community is important, too. That’s WHY we’re taking on such a big construction project.
Would YOU consider including ERUCC in your charitable giving? These donations will be used, 100%, towards this special project. Thanks for listening, considering a gift, and helping us bring this idea to reality for the community!
