Our goal is to identify and break down any barriers that keep people with disabilities and their families from being able to fully participate in the body life of this church.
As Joni Eareckson Tada suggests, “A person with a disability can do more for the spiritual well-being of the church than you can imagine.”
Most of our church is accessible. Check with Guest Central for locations of the elevators to access the A, B, C and D buildings on our main campus. There is also an elevator on the north campus in the back of the main building.
