When the Weather Outside Is Frightful...

In Case of Inclement Weather.png

Here are a few things to remember when snow, sleet, and freezing rain are in the forecast:

1.) Wednesday evening programming will not be determined by local school closings. The church will broadcast any cancellation on Wednesday via an email, our church’s website, Facebook page and in the local media.

2.) If the weather proves to be inclement on Sunday morning, we will make every effort to have church. If that goal proves to be elusive, we will likely A.) cancel Sunday School and offer only Worship at 10:30 AM, or B.) Schedule worship at 2:00 PM in the afternoon.

You may determine the status of our church programming at any time by checking our website, Facebook page, or our local media.  A decision will be made at least two hours prior to the regularly scheduled event.

Lastly, thank you for your understanding in advance as we strive to make decisions that are complicated by weather conditions which create different realities in our county due to location and elevation. Overwhelmingly, we are striving to provide continuity of ministry offerings while balancing concerns about road conditions.
