We are thrilled to share that construction has begun on the addition to our storage facility! Thanks to your support and financial contributions, ground was recently broken and we will soon have a heated room for sorting and organizing donations in the winter. When complete, this space will have a small indoor bathroom, work surfaces for spreading out items while inspecting/organizing them, and (eventually) a washer and dryer. Volunteers are overjoyed to know the porta-potty will soon be a thing of the past. Most of all, we are looking forward to a heated space in which to work. It will be much easier to organize the items we pull out for moving days and process newly donated items when not bundled in bulky clothing and wrapping cold fingers around travel mugs of hot coffee.
Moves have begun again, but only a handful so far. Covid-19 has impacted the number of people that we have been able to move. Please continue to pray that we will develop relationships with these women and share the love of Christ through each encounter.
Impromptu Yard Sale - this weekend ONLY. November 6-7 (Friday and Saturday), 8-4pm. 7831 County Route 13, Bath, NY 14810. Items include old and new condition furniture: desks, mirrors, and more. There is a variety of décor available too.
ERM has been storing some donated items for a long while which haven't been able to find homes with the women we serve. The storage facility has gotten so full, we recently had to implement a freeze on accepting item donations. Hopefully this sale will free up some storage space, making room for items that will better fit in new homes with the women we serve.
Reasonable offers accepted, (in whole dollar amounts). All proceeds go directly to Elizabeth Rose Ministry.
Hurrah! A local fundraiser is now in progress! We are thrilled to have something up and running. If you are able, please call or email to place an order and support Elizabeth Rose Ministry. See below for all information about this DELICIOUS opportunity.
If you're not local, this may be mildly disappointing news. We are still researching some possibilities for an online fundraiser activity so EVERYONE can participate. If you can't wait for that option, click above on "Donation Info" and use the DONATE NOW button.
Elizabeth Rose Ministry has regretfully decided to cancel this year’s main fundraiser. The Annual Ladies Tea and Auction has been a well-loved event and a staple of our funding. However, in light of public concern regarding pandemic health and safety, it would be irresponsible to host such a large gathering at this time. We hope to bring it back in the future! Keep watching here and at https://www.facebook.com/groups/elizabethroseminitry for details on some brand new ways to be involved. There are local as well as online-based opportunities in development now and we will be posting about them soon.

Founder Rejoices in Glory
Jan. 16, 2020
Elizabeth Rose Ministry would like to update our supporters regarding recent events. After a long, hard-fought battle with cancer, our founder, Debbie Wilson, is now rejoicing in the arms of Jesus and reunited with her daughter, Elizabeth. Her obituary is linked below.
Please keep her family in your prayers in the days ahead. Also, continue to pray for as we determine how God would have this ministry move forward and continue growing what Debbie started.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3
The women we are helping to heal and have a new beginning need Jesus. Please pray for God's presence to be felt and for Jesus to be real to them. Pray for Christian women to come alongside each woman and be a friend and mentor. From the Desk of Deb Wilson
