January 20 Status:

UMC Monroe Church Family,
Good morning!  As we wake up to our first winter storm of 2019 we want to let you know that “we are open” for worship (and for choir practice).   Our parking lot has been plowed and the church is accessible.  While we’re not cancelling our worship service, PLEASE USE YOUR DISCRETION about your travel — our primary concern is for everyone’s safety.   
Other than our 10:00 am worship service all other activities are cancelled for today including Sunday School, nursery, Fellowship Hour, Social Issues Discussion (rescheduled for Sunday, January 27), ASP Meeting (will be rescheduled for a later date) and Youth Group (service project will be rescheduled for a later date).   A note to the choir – please check your inbox for a choir-specific group email for any change to your status.
  1. As of 7:30 am this morning, the intersection of Cutlers Farm and Cross Hill is CLOSED due to a downed wire … please avoid this area
  2. There have been reports of multiple power outages across town — I’ve read reports of outages in the Barn Hill section as well as over in the Route 25/Dunkin Donuts area … there may be more!
If we don’t see you for worship this morning, we look forward to seeing you next week.  Stay warm and be safe!


With wintery/icy weather in the forecast for Sunday, January 20, we’d like to remind you how you can stay informed about any impact to church activities.

** Please use a “safety first” motto. Don’t drive if conditions are unsafe for YOU — we’ll see you the following week! **

Please check your email @8:00 am Sunday morning for any change to our regular schedule. Updates will also be posted on our church website (www.umcmonroe.org), FB page (@umcmonroe) and any of the Connecticut network news stations (ABC WTNH, CBS WFSB and NBC WVIT). Better yet, you can sign up for email and/or text alerts with NBC CT Storm Alerts!
