Coronavirus Updates - ERUUF

Update March 27, 2020|Fri, Mar 20, 2020 5:12 pm

At ERUUF we are committed to following Durham's Stay at Home order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (in effect until April 30).
We have moved to online only worship. On Sunday morning join us at 9:00 for the live stream service; the recording will be posted by 11 am. On our home page scroll down to Online Together.

On Wednesday evening join us by Zoom for a Wednesday Evening Vespers Service at 7pm. This will be a shorter, more informal service led remotely by Revs. Cayer and Brett, and will include recorded music, readings, stories, spoken and silent meditation, or prayer.

ERUUF lay leaders are in the process of moving their small groups, classes, and meetings online using programs such as Google Hangouts or Zoom.
