Accessibility of Building and Programs
Accessibility at Fourth Universalist
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 church.
Our sanctuary is fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. Our Religious Education classrooms are on a lower level only accessible by stairs. The are restrooms at street level are not wheel chair accessible.
Large print hymnals are always available. We also have a braille hymnal. Please ask any usher for assistance. If you would like an orientation tour of the church building during the week, contact the church office to make arrangements.
During all church meeting and workshops, 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.
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.
We provide pastoral care to all members regardless of ability. To build the beloved community, the volunteers on the care team work to assist those who may feel unwelcome, patronized or marginalized because of their disability. They may not be able to fully remedy every situation, but they 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 a member of the pastoral care team or contact the minister to share your information in confidence. You can reach the Caring Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
