ACCESSIBILITY AND ACCOMMODATIONS



Accessibility

Both the Bell Street campus and the Family Life Center campus are fully handicapped accessible and have marked handicapped parking.  The entire Family Life Center Campus is on one level.  The Bell Street building has an elevator inside the parking lot entrance that leads to all levels including classrooms, restrooms, offices and the Sanctuary.  The level Bell Street drop-off entrance leads directly into the Narthex.  Inside the Sanctuary there are spaces for individuals in wheelchairs.  Those finding it difficult to sit in pews may find one of the padded armchairs more comfortable.  Ushers and greeters are available for assistance before and throughout services.



Vision and Hearing Concerns

Our Sanctuary is equipped with a Hearing Loop system. This system turns hearing aids into loudspeakers, delivering sound right into the ear. A current is amplified and sent to a magnetic cable loop surrounding the Sanctuary and the balcony. This magnetic cable is installed under the carpet. Sound received with this system has improved quality and clarity. 85% of all hearing aids are equipped with a Telecoil which picks up the magnetic field signal. A person so equipped must visit their audiologist to ensure the Telecoil is activated. The individual simply pushes a button on their hearing aid upon entering the Sanctuary and they are immediately wired in when they enter the ‘loop’.


Large print bulletins and hearing aid devices are available in the Narthex.  



Communion Accommodations

For communion we use grape juice and bread. An alternative to the bread is available for those with gluten or wheat allergies.
