Emmanuel UMC is committed to being an inclusive and welcoming faith community for all, including people with disabilities or differing abilities. At Emmanuel, we offer a sign language interpreter during the 10:45am service on the 1st & 3rd Sunday and on other Sundays and events upon request. Some of the ways we are committed to accessibility includes:

  • Offer assistive listening devices
  • Large print materials
  • Sign language interpreter
  • Trained greeters and volunteers 
  • Promote disability awareness observances or campaigns (e.g. Disability Awareness Sunday)
  • An elevator for wheelchair users 
  • Audio description upon request
  • Captions for multimedia videos
  • Offer periodic sign language classes

For accessibility accommodations or concerns, please contact the disability ministries coordinator, Rev. Leo Yates, at RevYates@eumclaurel.org or by calling him at 301-725-5200.
