LITERATURE RACKS AND DISPLAYS.
Religious literature and devotional aids which
have been selected by the chaplain for display and
use should be placed by the RP in the literature
rack or prominently displayed. Literature racks
and displays should be neatly and attractively
arranged. Material which is out of date should be
removed and replaced with current material. An
RP should be designated to ensure that the
literature racks and displays are properly
organized and maintained.
Colors Used in Religious Facilities
Religious Program Specialists are responsible
for keeping Government facilities designated for
divine services and religious activities in good
order and as attractive as possible. The physical
appearance of these chapel and religious facilities
is as important to the military community as
similar facilities are to the civilian community.
Whenever interior or exterior painting of the
chapel is required, the colors selected should
contribute to the dignity of the chapel. The Navy
chapel should always provide a pleas-ant
background for worship. For the main area of the
chapel, snow white or gull gray are recommended.
Acceptable alternatives are pale green and sand
beige. Natural wood or stained wood pews are
preferable to pews which are painted as they
require less maintenance and are more practical.
If pews are painted, however, snow white should
be used. For the chapel vestibule, sacristy, vestry,
and office, pale green or sand beige is
recommended. The interior of kindergarten or
Sunday school rooms should be pale yellow or
