When Should Churches Think About Divvying up Space?
With the fluctuation in church attendance, churches are in constant need of evaluating their space usage. Asking questions like- do we have too much space, do we have too little space allocated to various ministries? Where will we host this event or that class?
What restricts a lot of churches with their space utilization is that they have permanent walls limiting the flexibility to transform their rooms to fit their needs. If they’ve got four or five existing classrooms, but all of a sudden need six or seven more, they have to make those additional classrooms somehow. Most often it’s done by converting the fellowship hall, multipurpose room or basement, gym or a sanctuary into additional rooms. That is exactly the reason Screenflex Portable Rooms Dividers were created. As a church architect, Screenflex creator, Paul Maas, wanted to give churches a flexible solution to using their space for many uses.
Church portable room dividers are the perfect solution. You can set them up as a last minute room when needed. You can quickly close up the room divider and store it in a closet, to open the room back up for much-needed privacy. When opened up, it can divide one area from another, or hide unsightly equipment? The dividers can keep kids away from an area, that is off limits or private?
Be sure to have enough people to staff the extra rooms you’ve created. Flexible spaces require flexible solutions!
