Church Policies

Bad weather policy

If there is a “severe weather warning” issued by the National Weather Service for our immediate area within one hour of the scheduled worship service our worship service may be canceled. The president of the church council will be responsible for making this decision. Bad road conditions and drifting snow are other conditions which may warrant a cancelation.

If possible, the cancelation will be aired on the two local radio stations — 93.9 FM KSOU and 88.5 FM KDCR. If you miss an on-air announcement, you can find the information online at on the “closings-postponements-delays” form OR on our website at 

If threatening weather develops or conditions worsen during a worship service and a warning comes in effect, we will dismiss and go to the church basement.

Our policy for high school and children's evening ministries during the week generally follow the decisions our local schools have made earlier in the day. If schools are canceled or have an early dismissal due to weather, generally all evening activities for youth are also canceled.  

Women of Faith groups are also canceled on days when school is not in session due to bad weather.
