Paying attention to our ministry environments matters. That whole cleanliness and Godliness thing is a big deal. It may not be the most exciting thing to get creative about BUT cleanliness is sometimes overlooked. We can forget that every part of our ministry sends a message including our environments. Calming paint colors, doorframes that are in good condition, clean windows, organized toys, and the absence of bad smells relate our commitment to excellence for families. A great budget is always nice but getting creative on how to store materials can be a great challenge for generating creative solutions. When our rooms are busy and disorganized it sends a message. It is important to hold cleanliness as a top priority in your ministry. As a ministry leader, your calendar is already packed so enlist the help of a volunteer or two! Set them up to succeed by giving them realistic expectations of what you are looking for in clean environments. Have them work on certain areas at a time. Divide the work up so that all environments are covered. An example schedule may be classroom shelves one week and then closets the next. Set up a schedule that works for you. With effort and time, your environments will reflect your priorities and your families will be thankful for it!
