ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The job losses at Cooper Tire in Albany mean tough times ahead for the community.

Many people may lean heavily on their churches for support.

On Wednesday night we went to a couple services where church members prayed for Cooper workers who will be affected by the closure.

"I think as pastors, as churches we want to offer the same story that God is still able to provide, and will see us through this crisis in our community," said Bishop Frederick Williams, Gethsemane Worship Center.

"I've been pastor here at the church for a little more than 19 years, we came in 1989 and I have discovered a tremendous resilient people. We were here through the flood of 1994, and then in 1998, we've see this community go through very difficult times," said Pastor Eddie Adams, Victory Tabernacle.

The ministers say Albany has been here through other difficult times before, and will get through these tough times.

Both say people should remember where one door closes another opens.
