Justice Sundays

For several years until June 2016, ERUUF funded the various justice projects that the Justice Council chose for continued long-term focus at ERUUF by periodically designating the collection plate offering for the Justice Council.  Six Sundays of the year, the plate was given to the Justice Council to support justice ministry at ERUUF and in the broader community.

The Justice Sunday offerings were the sole source of funds for these purposes.

At the annual congregational meeting in June 2016, the congregation voted to change this method of funding by approving a budget that contained a line item for the Justice Ministry Council.  Justice Sundays ceased to exist at that point.

This article is a summary of the funds that were raised by Justice Sundays.  The generosity of the ERUUF community is reflected in these numbers:
