Portable Church Space: WOULD LOVE ADVICE

Hey guys, So I'm the Family Ministry Director at Forefront Church in New York City. We currently have two portable church locations, and I run them both!

So, birth through 5th are all in an area about the size of 3 small classrooms, but with no walls between. We separate the areas using play panels, which is great, because it…See More

I was going to buy some LED battery lights for the ceiling, and use velcro command strips to get them to stick to the…See More

"I made some wooden panels that I use for the stage back drops. They are simply 1/4 wood subfloor with 1x2 boards around the edge to reinforce them. It costs about $12 - $15 to make each of these. You could make these, paint them whatever color or…"

"Hey Ashley, Signage and banners can do wonders. You can use a few stand up banners throughout the room to designate stations or just add some pop of colors. Obviously, this can be a pricy option, but RitzPix.com have some solutions that, while not…"

"Great idea! We just used the wall panel dividers for the first time today, and I didn't realize how dark it would make the room, so I needed to figure out new light stuff anyway! I like the idea of making it colored lights! Maybe I will take…"
