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:

accessibilities

 

Mobility

Our sanctuary and religious exploration classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility, as are all restrooms.

Hearing

During all worship services, 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.  Assisted listening devices are available upon request.  Please see a Beacon as you enter the sanctuary.

Chemical Sensitivity

We use odorless candles in our well-ventilated sanctuary.

We have castile soap available for hand washing at the sinks in the Nursery and pre-school rooms, and upon request at other locations.

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 inform the greeter at the door upon your arrival.

Our enrollment form for Religious Exploration includes questions about accommodations, allergies, and other needs, and that information is shared confidentially with our program facilitators.

Pastoral Care

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 is important for someone to know about, please contact a member of the pastoral care team or contact the minister to share your information in confidence.

Service Animals

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.
