Today is our 4th annual meal packaging event with Rise Against Hunger! With neighbors from Emmanuel Church, Bethel Tabernacle Pentecostal Church, and The South Asian Arts Council, we are transforming the Parish Hall into an all-ages assembly line. Be part of the fun as we package 20,088 highly-nutritious, dehydrated meals to be shipped across the globe to hungry people in dire circumstances. Looking forward to a joyful afternoon of hands-on service in support of international hunger relief!
Donations are also welcome at the event or at http://events.stophungernow.org/ArlingtonSt2017. A gift of $29 covers the cost of 100 meals. Give $100 and feed 345. Thank you for your generosity!

Special Considerations for Special Needs

The Arlington Street public transit station re-opened in June 2009 and now provides handicapped access from the transit station to street level via elevators and/or a ramp. A separate part of the MBTA project created a wheelchair ramp leading from street level on Boylston Street to the church office door.

Handicapped access to the Sanctuary on Arlington Street is provided by a ramp on Arlington Street which leads to an entrance to the Sanctuary.

During worship services, and other special events, FM amplification headsets can be provided upon request. Braille hymnals are also available for Sunday services, as well as a large print version of the hymnal and each week’s order of service. Please ask an usher for assistance.

Arlington Street Church has a wheelchair accessible restroom immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary.
