While the job of a pastor ultimately focuses on saving the souls of their congregation, sometimes they also try to assure their flock's safety while on Earth.
Sunday services are an important part of many people's faith lives and it is difficult to miss if they feel they can safely make it to the church.
Already this winter, many Sunday church services have been canceled due to the inclement weather. At the services which were held, most, if not all, saw fewer followers in the pews. Most of the faithful wisely chose to stay home.
Much like how worship styles vary from church to church, so does their approach to holding services in bad weather. The only consistent theme is that services are called off if there is a Level 3 weather emergency declared. Some churches also automatically cancel at Level 2.
