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, fellowship hall and religious education classrooms are accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. ADA bathrooms are located in the back of Holland Sanctuary and in Goddard Hall only. If you have questions about our classroom facilities, please reach out.
We have a braille hymnal that is available by request. Please ask any usher for assistance. If you would like an orientation tour of the campus during the week, contact the church office to make arrangements.
We have wire loop technology connected to our PA system. During all church meetings 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. Online YouTube services are closed captioned. We also use zoom technology to assist during online meetings.
Special Needs Children
If you want your child to participate in the religious education program and feel that they may require accommodations, 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 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 and Companion Animals
We have gravel areas where service animals may relieve themselves. If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact the church office to seek further information. Certified companion animals are often present in church, if you have allergy concerns please email us.
We have extra handicap parking spaces at UUCT. However, much of our congregation is in need of those spaces. Please arrive 15 minutes early to obtain optional parking access.
Our kitchen ministry believes that hot beverages and snacks are an essential part of community building. If you have any questions about vegan, gluten-free, nut allergies or other dietary issues, please talk to our dedicated kitchen crew. We are always happy to talk to you.
