Our ADA compliant bathrooms were completed in August 2015. They are located in the “library” area adjacent to the ADA Lift. There are two unisex bathrooms, one having a shower stall and one without.
This project qualified for a Community Preservation Act [CPA] grant from the Town of Belchertown because the church is designated in the town emergency plan as an emergency shelter. With the town grant, donations from church members, and a significant amount of volunteer labor, the project was signed off as complete by the Town Building Inspector on August 29th, 2015.
