Accessibility of Building and Programs
We welcome and affirm people of all abilities. We have taken the following steps to assure that no one is excluded for full participation in the life of our church.
Our sanctuary and social hall are accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. Our restrooms are wheelchair friendly, but are not fully accessible (we do not have push button doors).
Large print hymnals and Orders of Service are always available. Please ask any usher for assistance. If you would like an orientation tour of the building during the week, contact the church office to make arrangements.
Our sanctuary has amazing acoustics and is a very “live” room. This is wonderful for music, but some folks have trouble with spoken word when they sit in some parts of the room. We encourage anyone with hearing challenges to sit in the center pews, where the acoustics and speakers work best to assist with hearing. During worship, anyone wishing to speak from the congregation is encouraged to use a portable microphone so those who are hard of hearing are not excluded.
We use odorless candles and we encourage our members to not wear fragrances to worship. If you have any concerns about products used in the building, please be in touch with our minister, Rev. Carol.
Special Needs Children
If you want your child to participate in the lifespan faith development program and feel that they may require special accommodation due to learning disabilities or behavioral issues, please contact Rev. Carol in advance so the best possible arrangements can be made.
We provide pastoral care to all members regardless of ability. We may not be able to fully remedy every situation, but can provide a compassionate ear and a willingness to enlist the help of others. If you have a hidden disability that you think it’s important for someone to know, please contact Rev. Carol to share your information in confidence.
We have grassy areas where service animals may relieve themselves. If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact the church office to seek further information.
