Probably seeing as how down here, don’t have the equipment to clean the roads.
Yes if the roads are icy.
Not for snow!
No. Not just for snow cold winds
No, some people can make it and some can’t, but the church remains open.
No i never do that . Did so in the past but got a lot of complaints. so no more
The Sabbath was given to man not man to the Sabbath. I will always cancel church if I feel the roads or weather are hazardous. On to two inches is not the issue. Ice on the roads is the issue. You can always have another worship service but you cannot replace the lives or health of your members.
If we get a terrible blizzard like that here in South Texas I don’t have to cancel church the entire region will be in full panic mode lol
It depends on the service. I serve on the south side of DC. Due to the volume of traffic on Wednesday’s, people may take 3-4 hours to make the 30-40 min trip. Therefore I will cancel. On Sundays, I will look to see if I should postpone to the afternoon to have service. Recently we had 6”, so I preached via video on my website. I also get concerned about the elderly who, by nature, will get out if the church doors are open, and I don’t want to put them at risk.
It’s the Super Bowl lol
We didn’t even cancel Church for 98 MPH winds! That’s whaT flashlights are for!! This is Southeast Alaska for goodness sake!! ??
And THAT you can fact check! ??
Yes (it only happens every several years). I think it has happened twice in 11 years I have pastored in SC.
I think it depends on the area of the country you live in.
No…usually if over 6 inches is predicted, or icy mix…last winter we canceled only one Sunday morning, and 3 weds nights…
The one sunday morning we cancelled, we tried holding an afternoon service instead…attendance was still very low
It depends on the area of the country, ice/snow ratio and age of congregation.
This is a chilling discussion for mid-June!
I’ve driven to church in 6-8 inches of snow…that’s saying something in Tennessee lol
In the Myrtle beach area, you better. One they can’t drive in it, two they don’t have snowplows or salt and sand solution to spread.
No.We don’t but then we are used to the snow. We have snowplows here etc.
Many areas in the south close roads and snow and ice makes very difficult for many to maneuver around the closed roads.
I serve in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan…I usually cancel if there is freezing rain but not for snow unless there is at least 6 inches forecasted.
No, but do for 6 -8 and/or Ice. Ice is nasty and people who drive on it are risking property and life. I’ve seen it so bad where cars just literally slide off the road from a dead stop. Last winter, I think I cancelled one Sunday morning, and a few Weds nights…our snowfall totals for the winter last year were in the 7 ft range so there’s that…
Yes! I live in Alabama.
Yes , I live in Cleveland Tennessee ?llol
