Assessibility to those who want an alternative method to access our Fellowship Hall and our 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 Fellowship.

Mobility

Our Fellowship Hall and religious education classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility.

  

        

 

All restrooms are accessible.

Sight

Large print hymnals and Orders of Service are always available.

We also have a collection of “Reader” glasses for use during Service!

 

Please ask any usher for assistance. If you would like an orientation tour of the campus during the week, contact the Administrative Coordinator Elinor Tennyson to make arrangements.

Hearing

Currently we do not have wire loop technology connected to our PA system.

During all Fellowship meeting and workshops, preferred seating is offered up front.

Please speak to the service leader if you need assistance.

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.

Chemical Sensitivity

We are sensitive to the needs of those in our community who have chemical sensitivity.

We use odorless candles and in most cases electric candles

We encourage our members to not wear cologne or perfume to services.

This is announced consistently on Sundays during our welcoming remarks and on screen with our announcements.

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 Cynthia Green  or Assistant Director Julia Buggy 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, our Lay Pastoral Care member Bob Nuffer  (email: E_Nuff@msn.com

is dedicated to assisting those who may feel unwelcome, patronized or marginalized because of their disability.

He may not be able to fully remedy every situation, but he 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 our Lay pastoral care to share your information in confidence.

Service Animals

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 Administration Coordinator to seek further information.

If you have other needs, comments, suggestions or feedback, please contact us at admin@Olympicuuf.com or info@olympicuuf.com
