We welcome and affirm people of all abilities. Here is information about the accessibility of our historic building and the accommodations currently available.
MOBILITY: The main entrance to our building is on the Lincoln Street side of the Church, has one handicapped park space right in front of it, and is ramped.
There is easy access from there to the sanctury, social room, and parlor. The bathrooms, RE room, and art room, are available through a hallway that is ramped, however the hallway might be too narrow for larger wheelchairs.
The ladies bathroom has some support bars, but is NOT handicapped-certified. The minister’s office, a recreation room, and a kitchen upstairs, and the bookstore downstairs, are not ramped.
VISION: We have no special accommodations for the vision-impaired at this time.
HEARING: We have no special accommodations for the hearing-impaired at this time.
CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY: We use odorless candles, discourage the use of heavy perfumes, and use low VOC cleaning products.
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 Education in advance so the best possible arrangements can be made.
PASTORAL CARE: We provide pastoral care to all members regardless of ability. To build the beloved community, nobody should be made to feel unwelcome, patronized, or marginalized because of their disability. We may not be able to fully remedy every situation, but we 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 the minister to share your information in confidence.
SERVICE ANIMALS: There is a lawn area North of the building away from walkways and public view where service animals may relieve themselves.
PARKING AND TRANSIT: There is generally ample parking in the surrounding streets and also in the small lot behind the town gazebo across the street.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact us to seek further information.
