Our Staff, Leadership, Education and Staff Parish Teams have come up with a policy in regard to bad weather and closings/cancellations.
For Wednesday Night Activities: If Rockford Public Schools has cancelled classes for the day, then Wednesday Night activities will be cancelled that night, even if the weather clears up. This way it is more consistent and the committee serving the evening meal has to know whether they will be cooking or not.
Sunday Mornings: If weather is bad on Sunday morning, you can check on the church website (rockfordumc.org), WZZMTV or WOODTV to see if services will be cancelled.
Church Office: When Rockford Public Schools are closed due to bad weather, the staff will be on a two hour delay. If the roads are drivable after two hours, staff will plan to come in to work. If we are in the midst of a winter storm and driving is unsafe, staff is not expected to come in.
You can sign up on the website to receive texts about closings or other information. Please feel free to stay home if you don’t feel comfortable driving during snowy conditions.
