Traditionally, churches had a lot of space and each room had a purpose. There was a room for worship, a separate room for meetings, a hall for meals, and classrooms. Recently, many churches are using smaller spaces and the room has to serve many purposes. It is important to choose church furniture that can function in many different contexts to be efficient in space and finances.
New Chairs for Churches
Gone are the days of hard, wooden pews. Not only are they unpractical for a multi-purpose room, but they aren’t very welcoming or cozy. Today churches have a variety of choices for church chairs. Single cushioned chairs can be easily lined in rows for a worship service. These chairs work well around tables for a meal or meeting too. Many churches choose stacking chairs because they can be easily put one on top of another and moved out of the way to make an open space.
As a whole, church attendance is on the decline in our country. Over the last 30-40 years, churches have steadily reported drops in attendance on Sunday morning. This has led many churches to take some personal inventory on what they can do better. One of the ways many churches have decided to revamp their structure is by updating their church furniture.
Make your church the talk of the town with all new church furniture. Colorful classrooms help children have fun and also promote a good mood.
Design a new Sunday school classroom with a new colorful Noah’s Ark rug featuring the alphabet in big letters. It comes in sizes up to a 7’8″ X 10’10” Rectangle or oval shape. It’s so much fun to sit in the floor listening to a Bible story with your friends.

But most churches have a vast life beyond their sanctuary. Let’s explore other church furniture items you might not know you need.
