Emergency Closing Policy

The Hamphsire View Baptist Church makes every effort to maintain all regularly scheduled services, activities, and special events. However, in the event of inclement weather, hazardous travel conditions, severe damage to the facilities, power outage, or any other emergency affecting the ability to safely reach and/or use the facilities, the Emergency Closing Policy will be implemented.

Notifications will be posted using the following media sources:

  • Homepage of Church website http://www.hvbcsite.org
  • Church phone system
    • 301-570-8457
    • When the auto attendant answers, dial 205
  • WTOP Radio – 103.5 FM
  • http://wtop.com/closings-and-delays/
  • ABC 7 WJLA TV and News Channel 8
  • Infoshare email
  • When the emergency relates only to the facilities: Deacon-to-Member Phone Tree

Any emergency changes to scheduled services, activities, and events will be made and communicated as quickly as possible. If possible, changes will be determined by 7:00 a.m. for morning and daytime events and by 3:00 p.m. for evening events.
