Tenth seeks to integrate shut-ins and people with disabilities into the life of the church by providing access to corporate worship, Christian education, and congregational fellowship and by giving each member opportunities to use his or her gifts in Christian service.
Many who cannot attend in person join us in worship via the internet.
Our handicap access ramp is on Spruce Street. This leads to both the Sanctuary and Reception Hall, which has accessible bathrooms and the elevator. This is also where we have fellowship after services. The elevator gives nearly complete access to locations in the Spruce and Delancey buildings: to floors 1 and 2 and the basement and catacombs in the main building and to floors 1D, 2D, and 3D in the Delancey building.
The 315 S. 17th Street ramp is at the building's rear (via Cypress Street). Some Adult Bible School classes take place in 1Rear, the only accessible classroom there.
Handicapped parking for Sunday services and special events is reserved on both sides of the street directly in front of the sanctuary on Spruce Street. The yellow cones with the handicapped symbol are out when this is available. More information is on our parking page.
A limited number of wheelchairs are available for those who have mobility problems.
Large-print bulletins and hymns for the current Sunday are in 3-ring binders, obtainable from a deacon in the Narthex.
Our evening worship services are signed by a professional.
FM receivers that are tied into the sound system are available for people who have trouble hearing. These electronic devices are available from deacons in the Narthex.
Tenth provides programs for children with special needs.
An New International Version of the Bible is available in Braille. Ask an usher to get the book that includes the passage for the service you are attending. (The books are kept in our mailroom above the mailboxes.)
