The Merriam-Webster definition of renovate is “to restore to a former better state” or “to restore to life, vigor, or activity”. A high-quality renovation can breathe new life into your building. A fresh look can create a welcoming atmosphere and a renewed sense of community that can encourage congregants to return and attract new members.
Besides the benefits of renovating your existing space to help with retention and attracting new members, some churches are finding they may have underutilized space as some congregants have shifted to virtual service. These churches are looking for creative ways to use their available spaces for revenue generation or for serving needs in the Community.
