Weather Policy

Bethlehem Church Inclement Weather Policy

1- Worship is a very important part of the life of our church body, so we will make every effort to remain open for our worship services.

2- We will always trust you to make your own decision about getting out and traveling in inclement weather.

3- Just like the school system, we will usually wait until Sunday morning to make a decision about any change in our schedule.

4- We will make a brief assessment of travel conditions around the church and the safety of our parking lot and entrances.

5- If there is NO CHANGE to our church schedule, we will make NO ANNOUNCEMENT.

6- If conditions for travel are unsafe early in the morning, they are often cleared up by our 11 a.m. service time; so as a first response, we may invite everyone to come to our 11 a.m. service.

7- If we cannot assure reasonably safe conditions for people to park, enter, and exit our facilities, we will cancel services and/or postpone activities.

8- We will communicate any changes in our church schedule by the following means:

  • Television: WSOC Channel 9 and WBTV Channel 3 are the TV stations who are currently set up to announce a schedule change for us.
  • E-mail: An e-mail will be sent to those we have addresses for.
  • Phone: We will use our PhoneTree system if there is enough time before the event is scheduled to begin.
