If you are in charge of a church—whether as the leader of a committee, the pastor or religious leader, or the office manager—you may find yourself looking to breathe new life into the church to keep it afloat and to grow your church membership. One of the many ways you can go about this is by renovating your church grounds and building interiors and exteriors. Updating and upgrading your church property and building can make your church more appealing to potential new members and give you that extra edge you need to bring in more people every Sunday. Get to know some of the renovations and upgrades to make on your church to get you started.
Repave Your Parking Lot
One of the best ways to immediately refresh the appearance of your church building and grounds is to repave the parking lot. New asphalt paving has a sleek and bold look to it that will catch the eye and draw needed attention to your church. Passersby who might not even normally look at your church will take notice of the change and immediate improvement.
Another major benefit of repaving your parking lot with new asphalt, aside from the curb appeal, is that it is a relatively inexpensive renovation to invest in. If your church is truly struggling to bring in new parishioners, you likely do not have a great deal of extra cash to throw around. As such, new asphalt paving is a low-cost renovation option that has a big impact to give you the best results for the price. Contact a company like Phend & Brown to learn more about having your parking lot repaved.
Brighten Up With Fresh Paint And New Carpets
For the interior of your church building, two of the simplest and most effective ways to get things looking new and refreshed are to repaint and install new carpets. New carpets in your hallways, fellowship hall, and even in the offices and nursery can make the church look a great deal more modern that it previously did. Modern design is sleek and sophisticated. Young potential parishioners will take notice of the fact that the floors do not look dated or old-fashioned and will respond positively.
New paint on the walls can have a similar freshening effect on your church building. Even if you do not change the color of your walls dramatically, brightening the walls will make your church feel more inviting and welcoming to newcomers and long-time church members alike.
These basic tips will help you to breathe new life into your old church space and bring in more potential parishioners.
