Sanctuary Now More Handicapped Accessible

Our sanctuary is handicapped accessible!  Several pews have been removed (now in Fellowship Hall) to make room for wheelchairs.  There is also a small pew for a family member/friend to sit next to their loved one.  These improvements have provided more room for our choir to stand and sing into microphones.  We hope you enjoy the changes in our sanctuary.  If anyone has any other ideas about ways we can make our church welcome and inviting to all, please talk to one of our Worship Chair, Sue Eddins.
