Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement Weather Policy

In anticipation of winter weather, FUMC Allen has established closing procedures in the event of dangerous conditions due to snow or ice. Our goal is to keep our guests and members safe and off the roads if hazardous driving becomes an issue.

Closing announcements will first be posted on our home page and on our church’s  Twitter feed and Facebook page. You do not need to have a Facebook account or a Twitter account to view our social media pages so please do not hesitate to click on these links to get updates.

On weekdays during the public school year, FUMC Allen follows the closing decisions of the Allen ISD. Under most circumstances, a decision to close or delay school due to bad weather is made by 6:00am or earlier, according to the Allen ISD’s inclement weather policy. If schools are closed, the church is closed and all daytime activities are cancelled. If school openings are delayed, we will delay opening the church and Children’s Creative Playday Preschool.

During the evenings, weekend, and times when school is not in session, visit our website for details. When the threat of inclement weather is in the immediate forecast for the entire North Texas area during these circumstances, please watch this website as well as our social media feeds. Subscribers to FUMC Allen’s email newsletters will receive a Late Breaking News e-mail alert regarding weekend closings. You must be subscribed to our Constant Contact email service to receive the email notification. To subscribe, please visit this link.

We ask that members and guests not call the church office about church closings and program cancellations as we will be heading home to work remotely.
