The Huron County Accessibility Advisory Committee has presented the MRCC with an Award of Merit for Barrier Free Design. The award is given for excellence in accessibility design and Doug Kuyvenhoven accepted the award on behalf of the church. The committee had visited earlier in the year, and had pointed out several things in the church that could be improved upon for even better accessibility. During the summer the changes were made, such as brighter lighting, tape on the edge of the stage, grab bars in the bathroom, and clear parking areas. Now the church has many features that make it easier to see, hear and get around safely.
