EVER REACHING COMMUNITY OUTREACH
In August 2012, a small group of people reached out and worked together to help a local family in need. During the project, they were made aware of many other families and individuals in need around them. These fellow believers of different denominations felt compelled to "get off their pews," and start living out who they claimed to be as Christians. Since that time, Ever Reaching Community Outreach ("ERCO") has grown into a sizeable grassroots movement. Our mission statement is below:
ERCO is a collective group of Christian believers comprised of different denominations whose mission is to be "doers of the Word and not hearers only" (James 1:22), and to "love because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19). We are personally committed to the teaching in James 2:14-16 and Isaiah 58:7 that calls us to "share our food with the hungry ... give clothes to those who need them."
We also will put our faith in action by working to be a hub that partners the body, soul and spiritual needs of individuals with organized and intentional resources that are locally available to listen and help identify the work to meet those needs.
Because Christ gave Himself for us, we as Christians are called to give of ourselves to Him. We will be ever reaching, ever seeking opportunities to show Christ's love by serving others and providing them a message of hope and faith in Jesus Christ.
