Accessible to AllNews"Accessible to All" means Educating Us All: Chairs with arms

Have you ever found yourself searching for a chair with arms when you enter a room?  Whether a soccer match put you on the bench, you are recovering from knee surgery, or you have a long-time mobility challenge, getting up from an armless chair can be difficult.

As part of our Accessible to All (A2A) work, CUCC’s Property Ministry recently moved three chairs with arms into the sanctuary as an experiment.  Two are in the center area and one is in the rear.  If a chair with arms is what you need, these chairs are here for you.  If you find them all full on a Sunday, let us know and we can move one more into the sanctuary for future weeks.  Send your comments to the A2A group via Beth Allison-Moon at

Wooden arm chairs in the center and rear sections of the sanctuary are available for those for whom arm chairs are useful when standing.


If you are interested in assisting Community United Church of Christ in becoming “Accessible to All” you may contribute in several ways:

Give your time or talent to the A2A team.
a) As a full team member to help assess the environment
b) Help us become more aware of how we welcome ALL to our environment
c) Become a project team member to assist with an area of specialty that we may need to make physical changes
Contribute financially by labeling your gift “Accessible”. CUCC has an Accessibility Reserve Fund which is being used for accessibility improvements to our building.
