"It is not an uncommon sight to see families taking pictures of their children by the scenes. This has helped changed the attitude of workers and parents alike in a positive way."
For both newly-constructed and remodeled churches, we have seen space dedicated to children's areas increase dramatically over the past several years. Simply said, a visible investment in your children's ministry sends a tangible message to your community that you care about kids and families. It's a testimony of the church commitment to their children. Churches across the country are creating dramatic, engaging environments for this very reason. Based on recent years' data, these churches are reporting incredible results, including doubling and triple-digit growth. Some have reported doubling their kids' attendance in a single year as a direct result of their children's ministry. In a nutshell, themed areas and play features lead to a growth in regular attendance and subsequent increases to membership.
