As part of our commitment to Radical Hospitality, accessibility for all is a priority at FUMC. Working in a 160-year-old building presents unique challenges to ensuring all can access our services.
Access the church and sanctuary stair-free by entering at the south Bonnie Reid entrance (location of the taxi drop-off, ramp, and automatic door) and through the Aldersgate Room to the Sanctuary. Unfortunately, there is only stair access to the upstairs Sunday School rooms and basement. Sunday services and activities are generally held on the ground level; an usher will be happy to help with escorting children up or down stairs to Sunday school.
Our Children's Ministry Coordinator, Pam Houghton, would be happy to discuss accommodating any special needs your child may have. All children are invited and welcome.
Snacks are occasionally served in Sunday School; please inform your child's teacher of any dietary needs!
Large print hymnals are available; ushers will be happy to supply you with one.
Communion is served once a month with bread, gluten-free bread and grape juice.
Our bulletins are available online. We have a short form and a long form with full transcripts for those who are hearing impaired and would like a text to follow along.
