By Amy Green*NASHVILLE,
Tenn. (UMNS) - With the nation's economy still resisting recovery,
churches are eager to help the unemployed. Here's how a few are doing
Â· Weekly seminars. Topics generally range from networking to negotiating for the highest salary to owning your own business.
Support groups. Frequently incorporated with weekly seminars, these
groups give job seekers a chance to hear from those who found a job
after a layoff and learn how they dealt with unemployment.
Â· Work space. Some churches offer up their computers or fax machines when members don't have those things at home.
Â· Bills and rent. Some United Methodist churches have helped struggling families keep up with mounting expenses.
