We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, welcoming all, respecting our rich heritage as one of Frederick’s oldest downtown churches, and serving the present as a leader in social action and service to the community.
When winter weather hits, we may be uncertain about what will take place at church and what won’t. To take some of the uncertainty out of the quandary, here’s our winter weather policy:
You decide whether a drive or walk to the church is safe enough. We do not encourage you to risk life and limb to get to church at all costs, but we expect to hold services for those who can plan to arrive safely, unless the Frederick roads are closed. Our Pastors and Organist can walk to the church, so they will always be present for Sunday morning services.
Evening activities are generally governed by the public school schedule; for instance, if schools are closed on a Monday, there will be no Monday Mess Hall, Children’s Choir, or bell choir rehearsal. The same policy applies to committee meetings and any other regularly scheduled church activities.
