Building Designed for Accessibility
Good Shepherd’s architectural design allows access to all. People using wheelchairs, and walkers, as well as the visually impaired appreciate that everything is on one floor. Equipped with a Loop system, Good Shepherd has made listening for the hearing impaired a pleasant experience. Our architecture reflects our belief that all may experience God’s grace here.

Individuals with hearing aids
Good Shepherd is equipped with a state-of-the-art hearing loop system. The system contains a wire within the sanctuary and is connected to our sound system. The loop then transmits the sound electromagnetically. The electromagnetic signal is then picked up by the telecoil in the hearing aid or cochlear implant. With this equipment, individuals are able to hear the full worship service clearly.
Children and adults with developmental disabilities also experience a welcoming atmosphere through the architecture and people.
