How do you include people with physical challenges?

Sanctuary entrance, Wade Avenue side
The sanctuary, fellowship hall, main meeting rooms, and church school are on ground level with paved sidewalks connecting handicap parking spaces to the buildings. The door to the church school wing outside the Bradow room has a touch pad for opening.

Bathrooms are accessible and two in the fellowship hall are unisex. Hearing devices and large print bulletins and songs are available from the ushers.

Hearing Aid
At communion, we offer grape juice in order to include people with alcohol sensitivity and some bread which is gluten-free. Communion is served on the ground level of the sanctuary and we are glad to bring communion to you; just alert an usher or the person sitting next to you in the pew.

The Passing of the Peace is the sharing of a blessing. As people shake hands, one says “Peace of God be with you!” and the other responds, “And also with you!” Those who prefer to limit physical contact are welcome to exchange the greeting without shaking hands.

Pilgrim House entrance
With many of our members encountering new physical challenges, we are still learning ways to welcome one another. Your suggestions are welcome.
