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.

Mobility

Our sanctuary, classrooms and lower level meeting rooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. The lower level is accessible via a separate entrance which leads directly to the lower level meeting rooms.

Sight

Large print hymnals and Orders of Service are always available. Please ask any greeter for assistance. If you would like a tour of the facility during the week, contact the TPUUF office to make arrangements.

Hearing

We have wire loop technology connected to our PA system. 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 faith development program and feel that they may require special accommodation due to learning disabilities or behavioral issues, please contact the Director of Lifespan Faith Development 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, the volunteers on the care team receive special training 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 is important for someone to know, please contact a member of the pastoral care team or contact the minister 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 TPUUF office for further information.
