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 for full participation in the life of our church.
Our sanctuary and religious education classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. We do have offices in the Busch Center that are difficult to maneuver by wheelchair, but staff would be happy to meet with you in a wheelchair accessible area.
Large print 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 fellowship office to make 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.
We use odorless candles.
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 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 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.
