Mel Williams is the Pastor Emeritus of Watts Street Baptist Church and the Coordinator of End Poverty Durham. He tells us:
“For years I have had a growing concern about the disparity between rich and poor in our city. Our faith calls us to care for ‘the least of these’ and to provide opportunities for those who are least privileged.
In 2004, I said to my colleague Haywood Holderness, ‘We in the faith community need to do something about the poverty in Durham!’ Haywood said, ‘Call a meeting, and I’ll be there.’”
Come hear the rest of the story and learn about the present ministry of End Poverty Durham, a coalition of organizations and congregations working to alleviate the crisis of poverty in our city.
Join us for meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, and dessert beforehand. Dinner will be served from 5:45-6:15pm in the Fellowship Hall. Please sign up for dinner by Monday, February 19.
