CAMPTON, Ky. (BP) -- A Kentucky church is embracing solar power as a means to help the community and reduce their carbon footprint. Campton Baptist Church, part of the Red River Baptist Association, has installed 80 solar panels on the roof of the church, a project sponsored and installed by SonLight Power, an Ohio-based nonprofit that provides renewable electricity to communities worldwide. This was their first project in the United States. Campton's pastor, Gary Conner, sees the project as a "way to invest in the community."
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin calls state's faith communities to prayerwalk to help curb crime issues plaguing various communities.
