Easter service goes on as planned after car crashes into church

Church holds Easter services after car crash

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The damage a car left behind after it smashed into a local church isn't stopping the congregation from celebrating Easter today.

The pastor of Cane Run Missionary Baptist Church, Reverend Jordan Thompson, says he left his office just moments before the car came through that area. But despite the damage, Reverend Thompson says Easter Sunday services will go on as planned.

Reverend Thompson said the church is currently undergoing renovations and thankfully neither he, nor the driver, nor any of the contractors working outside at the time were injured.

"I could have been in that office. I was, just a few minutes prior to that happening, but because God was watching over us, watching over the church, watching over me, we going to truly have church and praise the lord for allowing what could have happened—what the devil meant for bad—not to happen. So we're going to have church. Believe me we're going to have some church,” Reverend Thompson said.

No word yet on what caused the crash.

If you would like to attend the 11:30 service, the church is located at 1455 Catalpa Street in the Park DuValle neighborhood.
