WOONSOCKET – Feeding the poor: They call it God’s work at The River United Methodist Church on Federal Street.
They’ve been doing it for years, but now they’ll be forced to do it without an essential ingredient: electricity.
National Grid cut power to The River Tuesday because the struggling church has fallen into arrears on its bill by almost $1,000, according to Pastor Rebecca Lambert.
“We serve a hurtin’ community,” said Lambert. “When we have a choice between turning on the lights and feeding the community we’ll be feeding the community first.”
