The building, sanctuary and bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. There are headphones for worshipers who are hearing impaired and over-size bulletins are available at the rear of the Sanctuary for those who are sight impaired. See more detailed information below. There are large print bulletins available for the visually impaired, please ask an usher for assistance.

Accommodations for children:

Children are welcome at any worship service. Our attended Crib Room/Nursery is open Sunday mornings from 9:45 until after worship for children ages birth to 3 and their parents. An overhead speaker allows adults to follow the worship service while their children relax and play. The nursery is located in the first floor main hallway. 

Children age 3 through 8th grade come to church with their parents and then leave the service after the children's moment. Children are escorted to their classrooms by a teacher or may be escorted by their parents. Special activity bulletins are available, please ask an usher for assistance. "Safe Church." Our church has adopted Safe Church Policies endorsed by the United Church of Christ.

What do I wear, etc? Come as You Are! About half the congregation likes to dress up and about half the congregation wears casual clothes to church. It is most important that you feel comfortable no matter what you wear.
