Common Area and Community Centers
We met with a church pastor who told us they were so involved with their community and had opened doors every day for moms, business people and groups to come and use their facility. He said, "If we can't pay to keep these doors open, we're pretty sure our community would pay to keep us open!" Now more than ever, we are seeing a rise in the number of cafes and coffee shops in Churches. These common areas make for a great connection space as well as a natural conduit from your parking lot to your worship center. We've seen increases in membership, an increased value to existing members, and a broader appeal to your Church. With open seating, lots of space and Wi-Fi, churches can become a natural "third place" for families to meet. 

Children's Areas Edutainment
Theming your Children's area is a great way to reach kids and families. When the kids are happy, mom and dad are happy too. Themed environments that are properly designed are not just props and decoration; they are tools used to help reach the hearts and minds of children. In addition to your themed children's area, entertainment and edutainment centers with legos, climbing walls, floor projectors and kiosk games, are some of the most common areas we have worked on. Anything that promotes hands-on learning makes kids happy and their parents happy too. Research shows that children learn best through play, and they also show up because it's just plain fun! Edutainment centers mark the beginning of a significant change in children's design. 

Children's Check-In Area
Adding Special Touches
It's often hard to view your own Church from a member's standpoint. Put yourself in their shoes and ask yourself some questions. How easy is it to navigate your church for someone who has never been? Do you have clear directional signage? How long does it take to find your children's area? Is there a designated area for strollers? Do you have foot traffic bottlenecks? These are some great questions to ask yourself when considering additions to your facility. After focusing on your top-of-the-line children's area, focus on some areas that are often overlooked like the intergenerational age and youth area. With 13 years of experience and over 600 projects completed, we know what it takes to create an awesome youth ministry space. Lighting, interactive play, and simple designs go a long way. From soft, contained climbing play to immersive games for older kids, creating environments that are built and themed to fit each age group is a great way to make your church a great place for your community.
