Accessibility of Buildings 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 Main Building (Sanctuary, Social Hall), Library, Cottage, and religious education classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. All have ADA accessible restrooms except for the Bridgehouse (school). Users of the Bridgehouse have access to nearby ADA accessible restrooms in the Main Building and Cottage (next door).
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 campus during the week, contact the church office to make arrangements. Anyone in need of braille services, please contact the church office to discuss 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. Anyone in need of ASL interpretation, please contact the church office to discuss arrangements.
We use odorless candles and our space is well ventilated.
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 Assistant Minister for Congregational Life 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, the volunteers on the 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 contact 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 church office to seek further information.
