I know there are a lot of churches who have all or part of their Children’s Ministry in portable buildings, so I thought I’d blog a little about our process of getting and outfitting portable buildings for ministry. When I first started talking to Gateway, I knew they were talking about getting some portables due to space issues. Gateway’s demographic changed substantially when the church moved into the building in it’s current location. As our auditorium filled to capacity, our children’s ministry exceeded capacity. We have kids in a few rooms that were never intended to be kids rooms. So, last spring the process began. It’s been a very long process (mainly working with the city to get permits) but we are only a few weeks away from moving into the portables.
So, over the next few days and weeks I look forward to writing all about what we are experiencing.

I am so interested to hear what you have to say. Our church is considering portables and I would love to get our kids some more room. Right now we have a large room split in half with one of those rolling dividers. Two Sunday School classes meet for an hour and then we have 5 min. to change that room into a kidâ€™s church room. We have a pretty good system for transition, but it is a little chaotic and I can’t do much set up for kidâ€™s church, because it would be in the way of Sunday School.
