The Bulletin Board Ministry was started in an effort to keep our boards (three committee boards and one small “Office Information” board) current and eye catching.
They’re changed approximately 4 times a year; the background papers and borders that are used are usually seasonal (ex., fall) or in keeping with the church seasons (i.e., Advent).
The boards that are changed every 4-6 weeks usually have decorations based on the Church Season, Holiday, Confirmation, First Communion, Church Events or Bible Verses or Stories.
Sources for the content come from several places. There are Bulletin Board idea books with patterns that can be used for inspiration. At times a Bible Verse, other churches’ signs with “thoughts of the day” provide inspiration. Also, the committees are responsible for going through their information to be back on the board. Usually e-mail is sent to committee chairs for a heads up that the boards are going to be changed.
Once the information is gathered and new paper, borders, and other decorations are assembled, these boards usually take 2-3 hours at the most to complete.
The Bulletin Board Kits, paper and borders are located in the second grade Sunday School room. If specific colors of paper are needed or if there is a kit or border that is not available, they can be purchased by Ruth Gomes with several days’ notice. There is a small budget for the Bulletin Board Ministry to purchase basic materials.
Bethel groups (committees, choirs, youth groups or Sunday School classes) are welcome to adopt a board for a month.
