I took this picture when consulting with a church almost 5 years ago. I do not remember the exact circumstances of the church, but I remember thinking, “I’ve got to get a picture of this.”
A pandemic is a great time to spruce up your facilities. There is going to be a new normal, and things will be different, but if your children’s ministry area looks like this, it is time for an update.
As you evaluate your space, it will be helpful to get a second opinion. Bring in a few parents from outside of your church to come in and give you their impressions. Invite them to be completely honest. Sometimes we don’t see how outdated our own facilities are. It’s hard to multiply if your base is out of date and culturally irrelevant.
