How do I join the choir? Choir practices take place at 7:30 pm every Thursday from September until the end of June, usually in the sanctuary. Everyone who is interested is welcome to join the choir at any rehearsal.
Are LGBT people welcome at FMCW? Absolutely! Our welcoming statement in part reads, “We affirm full participation in church membership, leadership, and marriage regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.: The complete welcome statement was affirmed in 2017 after a discernment process that included the entire congregation.
Is the church accessible to those with physical disabilities? We continue to improve accessibility in our century-old building. Ushers are available by the glass door front entrance for worship services and other events. They assist with entry to the building and with the lift which provides service to all levels of the building including accessible lower-level restrooms. Drivers may pull onto the front sidewalk to allow passengers safe entrance to the wheelchair ramp. An accessible parking space is available on the street right in front of the entrance and at marked stalls in the parking lot at the corner of Notre Dame Ave. and Alverstone Street. Technicians at the sound desk, located at the back of the sanctuary, provide hearing assist devices and large print hymnals.
