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 from full participation in the life of our congregation.
Our sanctuary, fellowship hall, religious education classrooms and meeting rooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. Restrooms on the ground floor are wheelchair accessible.
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 fellowship during the week, contact the fellowship office to make arrangements.
We have wire loop technology connected to our sanctuary sound system. During all fellowship meetings and workshops there, anyone from the audience wishing to speak is strongly encouraged to use the handheld microphones so those with hearing difficulties 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 in advance so the best possible arrangements can be made.
We provide pastoral care to all members regardless of ability. To build the Beloved Community, volunteers on the pastoral care team receive special training to assist those 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 a member of the pastoral care team or the minister 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 fellowship office to seek further information.
