Accessibility of Building and Programs
We welcome and affirm people of all abilities.
When we undertook a significant renovation of our meetinghouse in 2013-14, we were joyfully able to upgrade our space for accessibility. The building is fully accessible with ramped entrance to upper level, restrooms located on both levels, and elevator access to both levels of the meetinghouse and the chancel in the sanctuary.
Large print hymnals and Orders of Service are available. Please contact the office for an orientation of the facilities for mobility.
Hearing aids are available to amplify all worship services. During all church meetings 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.
We use odorless candles and encourage our membership to be aware of avoiding perfumes and tobacco smoke.
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 Rebecca Fricke, our Director of Religious Education, in advance so the best possible arrangements can be made.
We are dedicated to building a beloved community, especially through act of kindness and inclusion. We offer pastoral care to all members through a ministry of volunteers who 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 be aware of, please contact a member of the Pastoral Care team or contact our Interim 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 office to seek further information.
