May 16, 2023


Welcome to the Inclement Weather Policy page of River Oaks Church! As a community rooted in faith and beliefs, we understand the importance of maintaining safety and ensuring a seamless experience for all our members, visitors, and participants, even during extreme weather conditions.

Our Commitment to Safety

Here at River Oaks Church, the safety of our community is our top priority. We closely monitor and assess weather reports to make informed decisions regarding any necessary adjustments to our services and events. By implementing a robust Inclement Weather Policy, we strive to provide clear guidelines that enable everyone to stay informed and prepared.

Service and Event Adjustments

In the event of inclement weather, please refer to the following guidelines to stay updated:

Sunday Worship Services

1. Regular Service: We make every effort to maintain our regular Sunday Worship Services schedule. However, if severe weather conditions persist, we may modify the service timings or move to an alternative format, such as online streaming.

2. Delays or Cancellations: In situations where weather conditions pose significant safety risks, we may opt to delay the start time of the service, cancel it altogether, or switch to virtual services. Any changes will be communicated via our website, social media platforms, email, and local news channels.

Small Group Gatherings

1. Safety First: Small group gatherings may be subject to adjustments based on weather conditions. Group leaders will assess the situation and make decisions in the best interest of the members' safety. Communication regarding any changes, cancellations, or alternative arrangements will be shared directly within the respective groups.

Special Events

1. Precautionary Measures: For special events, such as conferences, seminars, or workshops, we undertake thorough planning to ensure the safety and well-being of all attendees. In the case of inclement weather, alternative arrangements or rescheduling options will be explored. Participants will be notified via email or phone with any necessary updates or changes.
