ERUUF is a special fellowship, in a strategic geographic position, at a critical time in our country’s history. While we all enjoy our oasis of justice, love, and compassion, many more people in nearby areas are searching for what ERUUF offers. We must seize this opportunity to “spread the light” throughout North Carolina and beyond. Please consider stretching your generosity as far as possible when you make a commitment to share ERUUF with more people in need of our cherished values, programs, and actions. Thank you!
