The Ebenezer Church of the Nazarene in Crowley was packed Saturday morning, but not because of the regular services. Parishioners showed support for Pastor Joe Talhelm, who has resided over the church for more than 20 years. Talhelm has battled melanoma for the past two years, and has seen costs add up due to seven surgeries and multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. The church doors overflowed thanks to a BBQ hamburger and sweets sales, fun run, silent auction and car wash.
