ERD (Episcopal Relief and Development) For the past two years it has become the custom at the Christmas Eve and Easter Day services to ask the worshipers at those services to throw their cash with wild abandonment into the offering plate. 1/2 of that loose plate offering has gone to purchase mosquito nets for places in the world still dealing with Malaria. So far we have sent $1,400.00 to ERD  for these life-giving gifts.
