LITTLE ROCK – Disruption of power and telephone service March 13 resulted in Immanuel Baptist Church to cancel Wednesday night services. The church is located in west Little Rock.
Doug Pigg, the church’s executive pastor, announced the cancellation of services in an email.
"All Church Activities are Cancelled for tonight, Wednesday, March 13 due to a major power outage in our area. Our phone lines are also down, so we are unable to create a message letting people know that we have cancelled activities tonight if anyone calls the church office,” Pigg stated in the email.
Forecasters said showers, thunderstorms and high winds were expected to sweep across the state Wednesday afternoon and evening. The high winds are expected to result in isolated power outages across the Arkansas.
