What is the purpose of the Adaptive Worship Space and who can use this space?
This is a space for students with light and sound sensitivity. This space will have a video feed from the main worship room and will offer interactive opportunities to engage in worship. THIS IS NOT A SPACE for adults or youth to hangout, a place for attending to the needs of young children, or as a place for conversation. The purpose is to provide a place for those needing respite from the lights and sounds of the BIG ROOM and to have the opportunity to engage in a worshipful environment.
