On a recent visit to Woodstock City Church, I noticed their signs. There were 2 things that I noticed. I noticed what signs they had displayed, and what signs they didn’t have displayed.
Let’s start with the signs they didn’t have up. They didn’t have any printed or hand written signs on their walls or doors. There were no signs advertising upcoming events or displaying messages. This made their space clean, and clutter free. It also meant that any signs that were displayed were noticed because they looked professional, clear and to the point. Here were some signs that they did have on their walls:
This sign was just on the inside of the room beside the door. It prompted volunteers to ask important questions when kids arrived.
This sign clearly outlined how the program was supposed to run and what time each section started and ended for each service.
This sign was for training new volunteers. This made sure that everything was covered so that new volunteers knew the policies and procedures while volunteering in that room.
This sign clearly communicated the bathroom policy and was posted beside the restroom door in every kids room. Here are a few more signs that were posted in their kids rooms.
What signs do you have in your kids rooms? Are there any signs you need to remove so that more attention can be given to signs that are important? Are there any signs that you could include that you do not currently have posted? Hopefully, these ideas will help you be more intentional with the signs you post in your kids rooms.
