What’s the story when it snows?

Cancellations – How Will I Know?

If the building is closed and activities are cancelled, there are 4 ways for you to find out. There will be:

  • a message on Knox’s website
  • an email to the entire congregation
  • a Knox App push message
  • an announcement on the office voicemail

What about Sunday?

There are 3 key decision times:

  • Before worship – are conditions severe enough to cancel all activities? If it looks bad, check your notification touch points.
  • During worship or Christian Education hour – if weather gets worse, everyone will be asked to leave the building ASAP.
  • Afternoon or evening special activities – same as before worship; check one of our four notification resources.

Monday – Friday

Key decision times:

  • early morning – the building will be closed if Ann Arbor schools are closed;
  • re-evaluation at 10 AM – the building could re-open at noon if weather and road conditions have improved;
  • re-evaluation at 3 PM – the building could re-open at 5 PM if weather and road conditions have improved;
  • re-evaluation throughout the day – similar to Sunday mornings, if weather or road conditions worsen while the building is open, the building will be closed and activities will be cancelled.

Saturday

The building will be open for morning, afternoon or evening activities if public roads are clear. As always, connect with your preferred notification resource.
