On December 7, 2003, we moved into our new Deaf Chapel. The Inman Deaf Chapel can seat 257 people. The building is the first of it kind to our knowledge that was built with the needs of the Deaf in mind. Each seat has a direct sight line to the stage. Each seat is spaced on 30-inch centers, as opposed to the 18 inches allowed in the pews of a hearing church.
Each row is rise 13 inches to allow a clear sight line to the stage. The floors have speakers mounted in them so the Deaf can feel the music. The entire room is on a loop system. This allows a Deaf person with a hearing aid to tie into the sound system with the flip of a switch on their hearing aid.
