Relationships start happening when a person first walks through the front door of your church. Engaging in a church experience is about developing a deep relationship with God and fostering meaningful connections with others. Our church lobbies play a critical role in building true community by giving people space and comfort to build connections, which is an essential aspect of growing together as the Body of Christ.

By focusing on six zones, your lobby can be a place that not only helps grow those relationships, but encourages people to practice and model hospitality and generosity. These zone are:

  • Welcome Centers
  • Hospitality Areas
  • Family Rooms
  • Generosity Zones
  • Outdoor Spaces
  • Next Steps and Action Centers
