Today a friend and I will be cleaning out our church’s resource room. Ever since we all got back from camp back in August the room has been in severe disarray. I mean everything we took to camp or brought back from it in the form of donations has been sitting on the floor in boxes just waiting to find a home. Alas, it was at the same time a couple Sundays ago that myself and another went up to the Christian Education Coordinator to ask if we could clean out the room. Funnily, neither of us had talked to each other, we had just suddenly felt the need to organize it. And organize it we will.
There is a lot of stuff in the room that we don’t use or is redundant, so with that there will be a lot of stuff to be disposed of or donated. Of course, it won’t be all fun and games. We both decided that since we’ll be going through everything that we would also set aside anything that we could use for the Advent Festival next month. I have a feeling that we won’t be needing to purchase very much in the way of supplies for three of the five projects we have planned.
Our goal is to make the room more functional, and so with that we will be getting rid of stuff that either is garbage, taking up space, or we already have multiples of. I kid you not, we have six projector screens at our church and for some reason five of those are in the resource room. I may be taking one of those home if any are still in good condition. The costumes need gone through and organized as well as decorations, most of which I don’t even think are known to the people who decorate the church. Maybe we can relocate those into their room instead? Alas, I hope with everything that needs to be done we can accomplish a majority of it today.
