Pastors host time for encouragement

Many people are facing and fearing tough financial times this year.

The Ellsworth Area Pastors' Association invites the public to the Ellsworth High School Cafetorium this Sunday from 4-6 p.m. The organization will host cookies, coffee and punch, and time for encouragement for everyone in the community.

Organizers hope the community will bring their ideas to share on networking and job searches, financial assistance ideas for those with credit and mortgage problems, health and food resource ideas, and creative ways to make ends meet in hard times.

The association will also host a time for public prayers and blessings from 4-5 p.m.

"When one of us suffers, our whole community suffers," Pastor Lauryl Stockness said. "But we trust, if we all work, pray and believe together, we will find the resources we need to accompany each other through this trying time in our economy, and even discover abundant blessings."

For more information, contact one of the following: Pastor Matt Anderson at (715) 273-3678, Pastor Greg Fondell at 792-2397, Pastor Stockness at 273-4617 or Pastor John Sutherland at 273-4570.
