Engaging Disability

In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul describes the church as the body of Christ. Just as the body is one and has many members, so too, the church is one with many members. For the church to flourish as the body of Christ, all of God's people must be welcomed, enfolded into the church, and able to use their spiritual gifts for the glory of God. For this reason, Wheatland seeks to welcome and enfold people of all abilities.  If you or someone you know is interested in talking further about what this looks like at Wheatland, please email Cheryl Erb. 

Below are a few of the ways we seek to welcome people with disabilities at Wheatland.


Handicapped Parking: Handicapped parking is available in the front of the main entrance and on the side of the sanctuary. Those in a wheelchair may enter the fellowship hall and proceed to the chair lift to enter the sanctuary. There is also a wheelchair accessible entrance on the side door of the sanctuary. Restrooms located off the fellowship hall are handicap accessible. 


Hearing Assistance and Sign Language: Hearing assisted devices are available. American Sign Language interpretation is available at the second service and some Sunday School classes. Please contact us to be connected to the interpreter for more information.


Order of Worship and Sermons: A copy of the Order of Worship is posted on the home page of our website a few days prior to each Sunday for those who benefit from early access to the service content. Sermon manuscripts are also available in the narthex for those who benefit from following along during the sermon.


Accommodations for Children: We also seek to provide accommodations in children's Sunday School as needed. We would be happy to talk further with you about what that may look like for your child.

Wheatland also partners with "Engaging Disability With The Gospel," which is the disability ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America. For resources, suggested reading, training opportunities, and more, please visit www.engagingdisability.org.

Please contact Cheryl Erb  with any questions about church life at Wheatland, as it relates to disability.
