The Church Junk Problem

by

Every church I have worked for has needed major cleaning out.  I hate that our Christian Ed space is so de-valued that it becomes a dumping ground.  I think one problem is that people don’t feel like they have the authority to get rid of things.  But somehow they DO have the authority to “donate” whatever they have handy, or leave it behind.  And so the junk accumulates.  It does NOT create welcoming space!  I filled the dumpster, and set aside a huge mound for the upcoming Rummage Sale.  But you just watch — how much stuff will get re-donated? 

How do you handle this problem?
