We welcome and affirm people of all abilities. We have taken the following steps to assure that no one is excluded from full participation in the life of our church.

Mobility

Our sanctuary, fellowship hall, and religious education classrooms are fully accessible to those using wheelchairs or having limited mobility. We provide fully accessible restrooms and meeting rooms.

Sight

We provide large print hymnals and Orders of Service. We also have a braille hymnal. 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.

Hearing

We have wire loop technology connected to our PA system. During all church meetings and workshops, we encourage anyone wishing to speak from the audience to use the portable microphones.

Chemical Sensitivity

We use odorless candles and low chemical/non-chemical cleaning solutions. We provide numerous houseplants throughout our building, which assist in air quality. None of our houseplants flower. We also provide a smoke-free building.

Special Needs Children

If you feel that your child may require special accommodation due to learning disabilities or behavioral issues, please contact the Director of Religious Education in advance so we can make the best possible arrangements.

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. Our care team 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 and want 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 welcome 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 church office to seek further information: info@uuwaco.org, minister@uuwaco.org, or 254.307.2001
