Seeking to become

Accessible to All

Widening Our Welcome!

Amicable welcomes all to worship and to utilize the church building for dinners, meetings, and other activities, but the physical nature of the building as it stood prevented many from feeling comfortable or even from joining us at all.

 

The mission of the Accessibility Task Force (ATF) was to to develop a plan to transform our church building into one that is indeed accessible to all individuals.  In addition, there were usability issues concerning the layout of the church building that made its use inconvenient and at times difficult.
