EVER REACHING COMMUNITY OUTREACH
What began in August of 2012 as a project to help a family in need has turned into a sizeable grassroots movement known as Ever Reaching Community Outreach (ERCO). After becoming aware of the many needs of those around us, we felt compelled to "get off our pews," and start living out who we say we are as Christians. 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.
