Church gets help with high electric bill

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB)-- The Louisville community is coming together to help a church that's been in the dark due to a high electric bill.

"I'm really not certain how much more they need, but I'm trusting God that we're gonna get it," says Brodoric Purvis, the fundraiser planner.

Saturday evening at West End Baptist Church, a Black History Program and Benefit was held for Lampton Baptist Church.

The church has been in the dark for weeks after failing to pay an electric bill of $32,000.

This stems from the church's boiler going bad.

Church officials say it required more energy to heat the church and led to this high LG&E bill.

Saturday evening, community members hoped to make a big dent in the bill by taking part in this program.

The church has been temporarily holding services at another church until its bill is paid.
