Inclement Weather Policy

In the event that severe weather, such as snow or hurricane, occurs in Newport News, Grace UMC wants you to know what to expect regarding scheduled events and worship.

Please note the following policies, but feel free to contact the Church office or the pastor (757-596-0217) if you have questions.

  • Call our main number 757-595-0017 for announcement regarding weather, or visit our website www.graceumcnn.org and look on the home page; we will post announcements whenever we are able.
  • Watch WVEC News channel 13 for closing announcements, or log on to WAVY.com or Fox43tv.com for closing listings.
  • If you attempt to call and receive a busy signal or get no answer, you may assume the phone lines are probably down and the church is without power, meaning our offices and buildings are closed. Call the pastor or lay leader for more information.
  • In all cases, please use your personal discretion to determine if it is safe for you to leave your home and travel to church.
