Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement weather notices are posted in red at the bottom of the homepage.

Please note that Glen Mar Church and the Early Learning Center do not conform to the Howard County Public School closing policies. The ELC and church may be open even when schools are closed or delayed.

When making a decision about closings and delays, we take into consideration county snow emergencies, school closing information, the condition of travel routes to the church, and the condition of church roads, parking areas and walkways.

Monday - Saturday

A pop-up notice will appear on our website by 6 a.m. with details of any closings and delayed openings for the church and ELC. We will also notify the local television station, WJZ, if there is a closing or delay.

A delayed opening means that the church and Early Learning Center will open at 10 a.m. During a delay, Early Learning Center morning half-day classes are canceled. If a delayed opening is in effect and conditions worsen, we will post a revised announcement by 8:30 a.m. Decisions about early closings and cancellation of evening activities will be made and posted by 2 p.m. The Early Learning Center will contact parents via the Remind App and email.

Some groups may cancel their meetings even when our building is open and accessible. Please check with your group leader to see if your group will meet or not.

Saturday Evenings

The final decision about Saturday evening worship and activities will be made and posted on the website by 3 p.m.


On Sunday mornings, a decision whether to hold worship services will be made by 6 a.m. and posted on the church website. The final decision about Sunday evening activities at the church will be made and posted on the website by 2 p.m.

Your safety and health are our priorities. We encourage everyone, including those participating in worship, to make wise personal safety decisions during inclement weather.
