Inclement Weather Policy

Emmanuel Lutheran Church (ELC) Inclement Weather Guidelines

The goal of this policy is to protect the safety of ELC members and guests coming to the church for worship, activities or meetings.

  • Emmanuel Lutheran Preschool follows the FCPS weather policy.
  • Sunday worship services are cancelled by the lead pastor. Please look for a notice by email, on the church website or Facebook page.
  • Church activities for children and youth are cancelled if Fairfax County Schools (FCPS) are closed due to weather conditions. Look for a notice to confirm cancellation on the website and Facebook page. If FCPS declares a delayed opening, afterschool activities are not affected.
  • Church meetings and other adult activities also adhere to the FCPS weather policy, with the exception of specific activities that have the approval of the lead pastor (example: Hypothermia Response Week activities).
