Our church is in the process of buying land to build a building, Lord willing. We have one more meeting before the city to see if we get the green light. But in the meantime we have begun to work with engineers and architects, and probably some other people that I am just not aware of. On Thursday this week I get to sit down with some of the architects and tell them what I would love to have and what we absolutely need. I have never done this before, so I am a little scared and nervous, because building a building is permanent, so I keep thinking "don't mess this up!" I have been touring different kids areas in churches the last couple weeks, mainly looking at the area I oversee, check-in and Birth-Age 5. I have seen some awesome things and some boring rooms.
So while I am compiling my list I thought I would ask you all...most of you are moms and/or most of you attend church, or have been to a church before. What are some of the things (either your church or another church you have been to) in a children's area that you think are must haves (like structurally, not so much toys), things you couldn't live without at your church, or this is something you really like about your kids area. I need help and ideas! So here you go, I am taking it to you all...sound off!
