Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign

Now that the song from Five Man Electical Band (or if you are younger – Tesla) is stuck in your head, I want tosign talk about church signs.  Not the sign for the congregational name, but those marquee or digital message signs.

I have a love-hate relationship with these signs, although they don’t know it.

  • I love that they draw attention to simple truths. I hate that the message is so short that sometimes it miscommunicates.
  • I love reading them as I drive or travel. I hated when I had to help come up with messages.

One church sign I read said, “Directions to heaven, turn right, go strait.”  I followed these directions and ended up at a community college. Do you see what I mean;  these signs can really mess someone up.

If  you have a sign, please consider that drivers can only read so many words as they pass by.  Long quotes or long verses are hard to read and may cause traffic accidents. Now that I have this mini rant out of my system . . .

Yesterday I read one that, honestly, I liked. It spurred a lot of thought.  I did not have time to stop and take a picture, I wish I had. I did find a church sign generator online and made one.  The sign read,


Just something to think about today.

Get active for God.

  1. Keri shares your disdain for having to come up with the sign every week too. 🙂 She goes online as well and has used some great ones. Luckily, we a traffic light right by the church in Niceville that makes people stop and notice what is written there.

    • There used to be a deacon or college student in charge of the sign there. At one time I think there was a book of church signs that Chris Stanley used as inspiration. It may be hiding at the building somewhere . . .

      • I’ll have her look around for that. She’s responsible for a lot of jobs that may have belonged to someone else, but she loves her work and considers it a blessing and great opportunity to serve God.
