Mop Brigade

Our church has what is called "Mop Brigade". The members of the congregation are divided into teams that take turns cleaning the facilities. They started this many years ago in order to save the money they would otherwise spend on a janitorial service. The money saved goes toward missions efforts around the world. Here are a few of my favorite things about it:

1. more money is allocated towards missions efforts

2. more missions efforts are put into place

3. we team together to clean the building

4. only clean once a month or six weeks

5. we get to teach our kids about service and cleaning

6. we get to teach our kids about mission work

7. all ages are involved

8. automated email reminders when it's our turn

9. often go out for lunch afterward

10. it's great working together for a good cause
