Accessible to AllNews"Accessible to All" means Education Us All: Lighting

A wall of windows may not be enough to brighten a room for reading or fine handwork or navigating around chairs … especially if one has limited vision.

As part of our Accessible to All (A2A) work, CUCC’s Property Ministry recently installed a new ceiling light fixture in the Bridge Room.  That  room had ceiling fixtures at the ends of the room, but none directly over the table.

Thank you to Autumn Cobeland and Susan Atkinson for finding a mid-century modern styled fixture for us, and to Ken Jacobson for installing it in a pre-existing ceiling light box.

A starburst style light fixture illuminates the tables in the Bridge Room.


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

  1. 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
  2. Contribute financially by labeling your gift “Accessible”. CUCC has an Accessibility Reserve Fund which is being used for accessibility improvements to our building.
