We did the big switheroo after the service today. With 12-15 adults each Sunday, the 65+ seat sanctuary was feeling cavernous. Besides, most of us preferred to hang out in the multipurpose room that has the kitchen and the coffee. It’s all about the coffee! 😉
We feel moving the kids to the brighter room will help upgrade their experience. And moving us to the cozier, smaller space will help upgrade ours. I’m pretty excited. It’s like God’s inviting us to do something that doesn’t seem to be being done in this area. (I may be wrong. I don’t get to check out other churches since I have a standing Sunday gig!)
In bringing the kids stuff into the brighter room that until-recently-was-the-sanctuary, we set up a handy little 4′ table I bought at Sam’s Club for Friday’s hot chocolate give away.
When I went out there a few minutes later, my four year old daughter was coloring at the table. “Look Daddy! It’s my reach!! I can’t wait to come here next Sunday!!”
I thought we had a good idea. Now I know we did.
