Give Your Time and Talents to Our Country
Bread for the World
Durham Bread for the World meets in Room 8 the third Thursday of every month from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. Bread for the World is a national, ecumenical Christian organization, which advocates legislation to help hungry and starving people in the U.S. and around the world. At the monthly meetings, participants receive timely information about legislation, pray, and write letters to Representatives and the President. Epworth participates in “Offerings of Letters” and observe Bread for the World Sunday in November.
We encourage each eligible voter to register and to exercise your right to vote. Voting is the most important way to participate in our democracy.
The following information may be helpful:
There’s a little over two months before voter registration deadlines (though you can do same-day registration later at early voting sites):
- Please check your registration status to make sure your registration is ACTIVE and ACCURATE: https://vt.ncsbe.gov/RegLkup/
- You can register to vote (or update your address) ONLINE for FREE, it only takes a couple minutes: https://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/offices-services/online/Pages/voter-registration-application.aspx
- You can request a mail-in / absentee ballot so you don’t have to go in person. No reason required. Ballots will be mailed in September but can be requested now: https://www.ncsbe.gov/Voting-Options/Absentee-Voting
- Please consider getting trained as a poll worker. All those lines you’ve been seeing in Kentucky and Georgia could just as easily happen here because many poll workers are in the high-risk category for COVID, and poll sites without sufficient workers may close.
