Inclement Weather Information

Our inclement weather procedures:

Regardless of the church's announced schedule of openings or closings, always use your best judgment about your local conditions. Please do not put safety or health at risk by trying to come to church when conditions appear unsafe or dangerous to you.

Child Care Center and Mother's Morning Out Procedures:

In the event of inclement weather, the Child Care Center will follow the Shelby School zone schedule when applicable. Call the Child Care Center at 704-482-3460 for late openings and closings or look for the school closing information on the following stations: WSOC & WBTV. MMO will close if the Shelby School zone closes. If Shelby School zone delays, MMO will open at 9am.

Church Office Procedures:
The church office will follow the winter weather closing schedule Cleveland County Schools. In the case of a delayed schedule, the office will open on the same delayed schedule. If the schools are closed for the day, the office will be closed for the morning, but may reopen in the afternoon if weather and road conditions improve enough that it becomes safe for employees to travel. 

Wednesday Night Procedures:

We will cancel Wednesday evening activities if the Cleveland County Schools are closed on that day. If severe weather develops late in the day, an announcement about Wednesday activities will be made here on the website and through the outlets listed below.

Sunday Procedures:

In case of harsh winter weather on Sunday, we will make every effort to have an 11:00 AM worship service in some form. If considerable power outages exist throughout the community, or if streets and sidewalks are too dangerous, we may need to cancel all Sunday activities.
