Our Commitment to Accessibility

The UUCSC recognizes and honors the fact that we are complex human beings, with the strengths and challenges we bring with us every day.  For many in our congregation, and many who visit the UUCSC, accessibility is a great challenge. Challenges relating to vision, hearing, mobility, communication, understanding, emotions, and other areas can present barriers to taking part in UUCSC services and programs. UUCSC is constantly working to create a welcoming and sacred environment for all.

The current accessibility features in place at UUCSC include:

  • Large print orders of service
  • Large print hymnals
  • Hearing loop in the sanctuary (T-switch accessible)
