At High Plains Church Unitarian Universalist, 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.

 

Mobility

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

 

Sight

All hymn lyrics are projected onto our two TV monitors each morning.  Please ask any usher for assistance.  If you would like an orientation tour of the campus during the week, contact Dawn Bergacker, our Office Administrator, to make arrangements.

 

Hearing

We have wire loop technology connected to our PA system. During all church meeting 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.

 

Special Needs Children

If you want your child to participate in our Faith Formation program and feel that they may require special accommodation due to learning disabilities or behavioral issues, please contact Heather Southard, our Faith Formation Coordinator, in advance so the best possible arrangements can be made.

 

Pastoral Care

HPCUU provides 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 at careteam@hpcuu.org to share your information in confidence.

 

Service Animals

We provide grassy areas where service animals may relieve themselves. If you have any questions not answered or concerns not addressed, please contact Dawn Bergacker, our Office Administrator, to seek further information.
