Inclement Weather Policy

Aldersgate’s Inclement Weather Policy (2019)
On weekdays, if the Federal Government is closed by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the church is closed and ALL activities are cancelled.
If Fairfax County Public Schools are closed, no children’s or youth groups (at all) will meet at the church.
Adult groups may meet at the leaders’ discretion. If you do not hear about what your group plans to do, please contact your leader directly.
Because the pastor lives close by, he will hold worship each weekend. However, your personal safety is important to us. The pastors and group leaders will understand completely if you do not feel comfortable coming to the church when weather conditions are questionable.
In the event of severe weather conditions or a power outage, the church may be closed or may modify its schedule. When possible, the Receptionist will call the leaders of scheduled events and will follow up with an email to ensure all are notified of the closure. Also, messages will be posted on the home page of the website and a mass email will be sent out as well as messages posted on Facebook other social media sites. If on a weekend, the media may be contacted as well.
(If the power is out, our phone and computer systems shut down – if the phone rings and rings and the system never picks up, we have no power!)
