ERUUF Coronavirus Updates

January 1, 2021

  • Update on Sunday services
    Given the high level resurgence of COVID-19 at the start of 2021, we have decided that at this time it will be safest for staff and ministers to move worship production out of the Sanctuary. Sunday worship will look different for a while—it'll appear the way it was last spring and summer when we produced it from home. However, members will still access worship the same way—by clicking the Join Live Stream Worship on the ERUUF website.  
  • At this time, ERUUF remains in Phase 2 of our own Reopening Guidelines. Click the Read More button below to learn more and to access Phased Reopening Documents.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Service: Meeting the Demands of Power
Revs. Cayer and Brett

Representative John Lewis said that when Dr. King was killed it felt as though part of himself died with him.  And yet he still worked with other people to fight for racial justice and the common good for the next fifty.  What does this mean for us today?  Ms. Antinuke Diver,  Executive Director, Durham CAN, Guest Speaker.

The project offers peer support and a box of essentials to residents returning to Durham from state prison. The program helps orient people to the resources available in our community, provides social and emotional support, and illustrates that we want returning residents to succeed in reentry.
