EVER REACHING COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Ever Reaching Out to Help Those in Need
OUR MISSION IS TO
"BE DOERS OF THE wORD AND NOT HEARERS ONLY."
10 YEARS! Amazing things have occurred and been accomplished since the ministry began in 2012 due to God’s grace and the support of our donors and volunteers. In 2022, we were blessed to serve over 7,500 individuals from multiple Mississippi counties with food assistance, clothes, baby items, housewares, furniture and appliances; to host "Love Out Loud" at Yogi on the Lake in April 2022, our annual family-fun day, where over 900+ people enjoyed games, activities, bounce houses, face-painting and a delicious lunch, and parents/guardians learned of important resources available to them; to provide area children in August 2022 with a fun day of free activities, as well as bookbags and school supplies to support their education; to provide Thanksgiving meals; and to provide Christmas assistance to over 50 children. We are so excited to see what God has in store for 2023.
At ERCO, our mission is to "be doers of the Word and not hearers only" (James 1:22), and to "love because He first loved us" (1John 4:19). We are personally committed to the teaching in James 2:14-16 and Isaiah 58:7, that calls us to 'share your food with the hungry ... give clothes to those who need them." We put our faith in action by meeting the physical needs of the less fortunate by distributing food, clothing, furniture and other supportive items we have available at no cost to them; and by meeting their spiritual needs through prayers, distribution of Bibles, personal and group evangelism; and by actively showing them unconditional love. We also put our faith in action by serving as a network hub with other organizations to create strategic alliances to share resources that provide for the body, soul and spiritual needs of individuals. We identify needs and work together to meet those needs through our collaborative efforts.
Please keep ERCO in your prayers; come volunteer when possible; and support this ministry through your donations of physical items (clothes, food, housewares, etc.) and finances in order that the important services and programs at ERCO can continue. We pray God will bless our efforts and allow us to continue to serve as His hands and feet throughout 2023.
