The Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community is now providing American Sign Language interpretation by a professional interpreter on Sunday mornings at their 11:30 a.m. worship gatherings.
The service is followed by a free lunch.
“Our goal is to welcome everyone by removing as many barriers as possible that keep people from participating in Christian community,” said Mike Holohan, director of ministries at the church. “By removing this language barrier we hope to welcome more folks from the deaf community.”
In addition to interpreting the music, prayers, and sermons of the worship service the interpreter will also be present for the mealtime to help facilitate conversations over lunch between deaf and hearing worshippers.
The church can be reached at 412-481-4010, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or on the web at www.hotmetalbridge.com.
