You will find passenger drop off zones on the Capitol Avenue side of the building. There is one designated handicapped space in front of the red doors and two directly across the street. These are the closest parking spaces to our no-step entries.

• From the garden on Seventh Street (to the north of the red doors), we offer a no-step, ramped entry to the sanctuary. 

• From the garden, there is also a no-step entry into the Commons (where refreshments are served), Cook-Diller Lounge, and the Chapel (ask someone for assistance for entry through the nursery).

• The portico-covered doorway that accesses the church from the parking lot behind the building has three steps.

Designated Parking for handicapped persons

Behind the church: Two marked spaces, both near the portico. There are curb cuts at the street corners. There is one marked space in front of the church, which is nearest to the entrances with no steps.


Wheelchair Accessibility

 We offer lots of room in the sanctuary for extra long wheelchairs. Several rows are configured as modular seating, so your wheelchair will not be isolated from others. A greeter can remove seats to make room in a space you prefer. We have one courtesy wheelchair available upon request. 

Restrooms 

Two accessible, family restrooms are located in the narthex (church entry). The west restroom has an infant changing table.
