Our unity as a body shows off the glories of our savior, Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1). To that end, we endeavor to make our corporate gatherings accessible for every person who enters our doors. Working within the constraints of what a century-old building allows, you'll find below some guidelines for assisting with your visit to Capitol Hill Baptist Church.
Handicap parking spaces are near the church doors in both the main parking lot off of 5th Street NE and the smaller parking lot off of A Street NE. Parking attendants can help you identify these spaces.
We have a handicap accessible ramp from the smaller parking lot that leads to the first floor and enters through handicap accessible doors in the front of the building and an elevator that services the first floor, ground, and basement.
Access to the elevator is from the smaller parking lot off of A Street NE. A phone number is listed there should you need assistance. Help is available via this number during Sunday School, the Sunday morning and Sunday evening services, and Wednesday night Bible study.
Unfortunately our elevator only operates between the first floor, ground, and basement. That can accommodate spaces used for our services and adult Sunday School but it cannot accommodate our childrens ministry spaces. If you are a mobility-impaired parent or if you have mobility-impaired children, please contact Gio Lynch, our children's ministry administrator.
Assistive listening devices are available from an usher during Sunday services.
Large-print bulletins and bibles are available from an usher during Sunday services. In addition, some individuals with visual impairments have found it helpful to scan the bulletin into a reading device so they can listen to it prior to the service. Unfortunately due to music copyright issues, we cannot make our bulletins available to the general public. If you would like to receive a copy prior to a Sunday service, please e-mail .
The bread we use for the Lord's Supper is gluten-free.
We take care to ensure that the only foods used in our pre-school rooms (birth through pre-K) are water and General Mills' Kix, a corn-based cereal. You can find the ingredients for Kix here. Our programs for school-aged kids involve snacks with additional ingredients. Please contact Gio Lynch, our children's ministry administrator, to discuss arrangements we should make for your food-allergic child to participate.
