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

CVUU is fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. An elevator just off our foyer is available for anyone needing it.

All restrooms are wheel chair accessible..

Sight

Large print hymnals and Orders of Service are always available. Please ask any usher for assistance. If you would like an orientation tour of CVUU during the week, contact the office manager to make arrangements.

Hearing

Our sanctuary PA system provides wireless narrow-band FM listening receivers for those needing hearing assistance. Before the start of service stop by the sound booth in the rear of the sanctuary to pick up a receiver and headphones or bring your own headphones. Headphones should have a 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) stereo or monaural plug.

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 – [email protected] – 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 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.

Service Animals

Service animals are welcome in our sanctuary, social hall, and religious education spaces. We have grassy areas where service animals may relieve themselves. Please collect feces by bag and dispose of it in the green bins behind our building.

Questions

If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact the church office to seek further information.
