Join Conference Minister The Rev. Kent Siladi as he talks about the Accessible to All (A2A) initiative with The Rev. Sarah Lund, UCC Minister for Disabilities and Mental Health Justice, and Jaclyn Schofield, who serves on the UCC Disabilities Ministries Board.
A2A was developed by the UCC Disabilities Ministries Board to help Conferences, Associations and Local Churches offer God's extravagant welcome to people who live with disabilities and mental health issues. The A2A curriculum is designed to offer resources for evaluating the physical accessibility of churches, offices and events, as well as guidance in building a better understanding of people with disabilities and the gifts they can bring to our communities.
Join in this conversation to learn how to become one of a growing circle of "Accessible to All" churches.
