Inclement Weather Policy

From time to time weather issues may have an impact on services at First Baptist.  When these events occur, we will follow these general practices:

A) Weekend services: The Deacons, Pastor and Staff will communicate on the situation and make a call based on current weather conditions.  We will usually lean toward NOT cancelling Sunday morning services if any surrounding families can attend.  Those who may have to travel icy roads or through hazardous conditions to get to FBC are encouraged to stay home during these times rather than risk an accident.  In those cases we will have worship with those available.

B) Weeknight services and meetings: The staff and/or team leaders for groups meeting will determine these on an individual basis.  As a general rule, if the school system closes due to the weather, FBC will also.

POSTING: When a decision is made about altering or cancelling a service due to weather, we will post that news on both our website and our facebook page.  If a weekend service is cancelled, our deacon ministry will contact the classes/groups they are responsible for by calling their key leaders and passing along the message.  When possible we will also send out an email through our prayer chain/news network.  Please note that you must request to be put on this list by sending your email address to along with your name and other contact info.
