  March 20, 2010 POCATELLO — The annual interfaith prayer service hosted by the First Presbyterian Church in Pocatello, in conjunction   with feeding the 5,000 Families food drive, will take place today beginning at noon and will last about an hour. The service will include a multimedia presentation as well as a liturgy for all faiths to participate. There will be silent times for prayer and reflection. The focus of this prayer service is to bring awareness of hunger in our community and the world.    There will be displays showing how we as individuals and as communities can help to eliminate hunger. The displays will include information about Bread for the World and   the Interfaith Round Table on Hunger. Roger Wheeler will be conducting the service. During the quiet times candles will be lit and there will be comment sheets and prayer sheets provided.    The church is located at 202 S. 7th Ave. and please call Melissa at 282-2274 for more information. Please bring a can of food.    The feeding the 5000 families food drive is currently going on and will run until April 19. We have set a goal of 25,000 dollars and 25,000 pounds of food to collect for the local agencies. Please check our Web site at for additional information.
