Local churches are feeling the financial crunch as demands get greater

From the Lehigh Valley in Eastern PA.

It makes sense that churches are starting to feel the sting from a slumping economy and the Wall Street meltdown. Often churches are where people show up for help. And at Trinity Episcopal Church in Bethlehem more people have been showing up at the church's soup kitchen.

The church's Soup Kitchen Coordinator Liz Miller says the church has served more than 1,500 meals for this year through September than during the same period in 2007.
