In case of inclement weather

Group 236

Heavy snowfall, limited travel and potential power outages are among expectations with severe winter weather. Practical congregation storm-prep measures – as individuals, as worshiping communities, as facility managers, and as good neighbors – are compiled in the post: “Storm blows in considerations.”
At the synod office, we follow closures as announced by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Go to and glance at “Operating Status” on the top bar to check. In case of urgency, synod leaders are invited to contact Bishop Graham if the office is not open.
PRAYER (adapted from ELCA Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod)
Heavenly Father,
We lift before you people in the path of the storm,
especially those who are vulnerable to the cold, snow and ice;
those who must work for others’ safety during the storm,
those who may face loss of power and heat,
those experiencing homelessness who live on the streets.
Bring comfort to all bracing for the storm, and
give us strength to reach out as your hands to serve those around us affected by the weather.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
