Web page offers help to strapped churches

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Southern Baptists are starting a new Web page aimed at offering spiritual and practical advice to individuals, churches and other groups suffering from the economic downturn.

Tennessee Baptist Convention executive director James Porch, who is helping create the online feature at www.tnbaptist.org entitled "Hope in Unsettled Times Your Crisis We Care," says it's set to launch next week.

Porch says members of the convention, which includes 3,213 churches and missions, have been greatly affected by the economic recession.

The new page will feature Scripture centered around themes of hope, faith and compassion to help people cope with the crisis and articles offering advice on creating a budget.
