My son is in charge of “shutting down” our chapel after church. The list he made to help organize his quorum (see below) nearly makes my eyes bleed. I take a few deep breaths every time I see it and tell myself it is more important that he is completing this responsibility himself than it is that the assignment sheet is cute. Or readable. Gah.
Anyway. This is a common thing with young men and I think it’s ok. Everything doesn’t have to have a cute font and be laminated. The tasks at hand are still being accomplished. It’s all good.
But just a tiny bit more finesse really could be helpful. Like this simple printable to help with the weekly responsibility of passing the sacrament. We have a constantly rotating crew of young men and adults who fill in, and there is a frequent need for a few quick notes of instruction and organization right before the meeting begins. This printable could really help quickly and discreetly establish a sacrament “game plan” or assign “routes” without standing and pointing.
There are two chapel floor plans that you can print, one with an overflow and one without. Print the appropriate floor plan (or both, if you occasionally open your overflow but not always), slip it in a sheet protector and throw in a dry erase marker if you’re feeling generous. Give it to your young man to explain to the deacons or hand it to your Young Men’s President and see if he wants to use it. If they need to explain which “route” to take with the sacrament, they’ll have a floor plan and marker available at their fingertips to help teach everyone.
My husband had a genius addition. Put velcro on the sheet protector and underneath the deacons bench, so it’s always stuck right below their seats. Otherwise, I think you could keep it next to the hymn books on the deacons row.
As always, feel free to use and share and by all means, get this thing on Pinterest. Have you seen one single Young Men’s pin on that place? It’s time to change that.
