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, fellowship hall and religious education classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. We do have storage rooms in the church basement that can only be reached by stairs and one restroom in the church office is not accessible, but other restrooms are.
In the future we hope to make large print hymnals and Orders of Service available. Please ask any usher or greeter on Sunday mornings for assistance. If you would like an orientation tour of the campus during the week, contact the church office email@example.com to make arrangements.
We have wire loop technology connected to our PA system. During all church meeting and workshops, anyone wishing to speak from the audience is strongly encouraged to use the portable microphones so those who are hard of hearing are not excluded.
Special Needs Children
If you want your child to participate in the religious education program and feel that they may require special accommodation due to learning disabilities or behavioral issues, please contact the Director of Religious Education firstname.lastname@example.org in advance so the best possible arrangements can be made.
We provide pastoral care to all members regardless of ability. The volunteers on the care team assist anyone who may feel unwelcome, patronized or marginalized because of their disability. They may not be able to fully remedy every situation, but they 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 the minister email@example.com to share your information in confidence.
We welcome people with service animals. There are grassy areas on the far side of the parking lot where service animals may relieve themselves. If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact the church office firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
