Inclement Weather Cancellation Policy
During any weather event, the safety of our members is of utmost importance. Only attempt to drive to church if it is safe to do so.
If Washington County Public Schools are closed all day due to inclement weather all church programs and activities will be cancelled.
If there is a school opening delay:
all church programs and activities scheduled during the time of the delay will be cancelled. Any programs scheduled after the delay will be held as planned.
Evenings and Weekends:
In the event schools close early or cancel weekday evening activities, all Benevola evening activities will be closed. Weekend cancellations will also be announced through a church-wide email and posted on our Facebook page.
Sunday Worship Services:
The determination to cancel services will be made by the pastor, in consultation with the Chairperson of Trustees or other designated leader. Such cancellations will be announced by 7:00 am via church-wide email, the BUMC Family facebook page, and recorded message on the church office phone, 301-791-3576.
Determination will be based on the most recent weather and road information available at the time of announcement.
During questionable weather, members are advised to check these venues after 7:15 am before driving to church.
