This year, ERUUFians have the opportunity to join with folks all over the country in this month-long spiritual journey of commitment to action and service. Beginning mid-January, check out E-news and Facebook postings where you’ll find quotes, reminders, and opportunities for love and service.

The Foundation considered 7 proposals across a broad spectrum of concerns this year and is delighted to announce funding of four.
~From the Nov. 30 Sunday service on Leading With Your Heart: Whose Lives Are We Transforming?
The Christian season of Advent begins on November 30th this year. Advent consists of the four Sundays that precede Christmas and has probably been observed since the fourth century. Advent has been a time of spiritual reflection as well as cheer and anticipation.
Thank you for responding to our Vision Quest survey - we had over 130 responses! We appreciate your input and thoughts on how to improve the justice program at ERUUF.
