Accessibility of Building and Programs
We welcome and affirm people of all abilities. We have taken the following steps to ensure that no one is excluded from full participation in the life of our church.
Our sanctuary, parlor, and religious education classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility.
We have listening devices available for those with hearing impairments or difficulties. Please contact an usher for more information. During all church meeting and workshops, anyone wishing to speak from the audience is strongly encouraged to use the portable microphones (when available) so those who are hard of hearing are not excluded.
We use odorless candles and we ask people not to wear perfumes or other scents.
Special Needs Children
If you want your child to participate in the religious exploration program and feel that they may require special accommodation due to learning disabilities or behavioral issues, please contact the Director of Religious Exploration 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 welcome service animals to our Sunday service and church events. No other animals are allowed on the premises. If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact the church office to seek further information.
