General Inclement Weather Policy

The Senior Pastor and Church Administrator are responsible for the decision to close Manchester UMC because of weather conditions. This includes morning, afternoon and evening activities for children, youth, and adults.

The Church Administrator will work with the Director of Communications to ensure the closing is communicated to all concerned persons. MUMC employees are responsible for seeking this information through our website, email, church phone system audio response, or contacting their supervisor.

In addition, St. Louis local television stations and websites KMOV, KSDK, and FOX2News will all have posted alerts about MUMC’s closing (NOTE: these will appear on KMOV’s website only, not on tv.)

If you are a ministry leader and you choose to cancel your group or event and the church is NOT officially closed, it is your responsibility to contact your group members to let them know.

For more information, please call the church’s main office number.
