HEALING A HURTING WORLD…. Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) is the international relief and development agency of the Episcopal church of the United States guided by the principles of compassion, dignity and generosity as we work to heal a hurting world. ERD takes its mandate from the words of Jesus found in Matthew 25: 37-40 that calls us to feed the hungry, care for the sick and welcome the stranger.

ERD publishes a catalog for alternative gift giving in the late fall and spring. This catalog offers each of us the opportunity to purchase gifts that meet a wide-ranging spectrum of needs around the world. Catalogs are made available after worship services in late fall and spring OR by contacting Deacon Roxanne Klingensmith, 586-9093 x 3.

Alternative gifts may also be purchased any time of the year on the ERD website.
