“…God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.”1 Corinthians 12:25
Children with Special Needs
All children are a blessing from the Lord (Psalm 127:3) and an important part of the body of Christ. We provide extra support for children with special needs and their families during Bible School and morning worship services.

Sign Language Interpretation: Our 6:30 PM worship services are signed by a professional American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter. The interpreter sits at the front of the Sanctuary on the 18th Street side of the building.
Hearing Enhancement Units: Hearing enhancement units provide amplified listening during all worship services. These units (a receiver and earbuds) are available from a deacon or deaconess (anyone wearing a name tag) in the Narthex (main church entrance).
Many people across the country and around the world who cannot attend Tenth or their local church in person join us for worship via the Livestream.
Accessibility Ramp: Ramp access to Tenth is on Spruce Street on the western (18th Street) side of the Spruce Street building. The ramp provides convenient wheelchair and stroller access (link to campus map). Once you have entered the building through the doors at the top of the ramp, turn RIGHT to get to Reception Hall (and the elevator) or LEFT to enter the Sanctuary. These doors provide entrance to the front of the Sanctuary only, and we apologize in advance for any discomfort this might cause. Currently there is not a push button to open the doors at the top of the ramp. We do apologize for this inconvenience and are working to correct it.
Elevator: Our elevator gives nearly complete access to locations in the Spruce and Delancey buildings. Ground floor access is in Reception Hall.
Accessible Restrooms: Accessible restrooms are located in the Spruce Street building off of Reception Hall on the ground floor.
Wheelchairs: A limited number of wheelchairs are available. For assistance, please speak with a deacon or deaconess (anyone wearing a name tag).
315 S. 17th Street Ramp: The ramp to the 315 Building is accessible via Cypress Street at the back of the building. Some Adult Bible School classes take place in this building in 1Rear, the building’s accessible classroom.
General Assistance: The ladies and gentlemen you see around the church with name tags are deacons and deaconesses, ready and available to assist you with any need or situation that might arise. Please don’t hesitate to ask for help!
Handicapped parking for Sunday services and special events is available on both sides of Spruce Street directly in front of the church building. The yellow cones with the handicapped symbol indicate where handicapped parking is available. Please remember to display your Tenth parking placard and to follow all other parking instructions on the placard. Placards can be found in the Spruce and Delancey lobbies. More information about parking can be found on our Directions & Parking page.
There are a number of metered handicapped spaces within a 1-block radius of the church. On Sundays, you can park in these metered spots for free, if one is available. Simply display both your handicapped placard and Tenth parking placard in your windshield.
Large-Print Bulletins and Hymns: Large-print bulletins and hymns are available from a deacon or deaconess (just look for someone with a name tag) in the Narthex (main entrance).
Braille Bible: We have braille NIV Bibles available. Ask a deacon or deaconess (anyone with a name tag) in the Narthex (main entrance) for a braille Bible.
