Staff at Fincastle Baptist Church spent Tuesday morning setting up tables where a dozen leaders from different denominations from all over the WSLS 10 viewing area will answer calls from the community.

You’ll be able to call anonymously and speak with a pastor, rabbi or priest to ask questions, have them pray for you and your family, or just talk.
