One of the primary goals of any church is to attract new visitors. For years, churches have been using their exterior signs to help with this. However, thanks to LED video displays taking the place of the old marquee signs that had to be changed letter by letter, drawing attention to your church has become easier than ever.
However, even though the physical process of changing your sign has gotten more straightforward, you still need to know what to write. We’ve broken down the most popular categories of welcome messages for church signs, along with some of our favorite examples.
Many potential visitors to your church only need a small reminder that they need change, hope, and healing. Inspirational quotes are a great way to show them that your house of worship can help them find what they’re looking for.
These are a few of our favorite inspirational messages:
“If you are more fortunate than others, build a longer table, not a taller fence.”
“Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.”
“Come as you are. You can change inside.”
Funny church signs are classics for a reason. If your witty saying is clever enough, you can be sure of getting some free word-of-mouth advertising or even becoming a viral sensation.
Here are some of our top picks for funny sign options:
“Hipster Jesus loved you before you were cool.”
“The fact that there’s a highway to hell, but only a stairway to heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers.”
“Don’t make me come down there. -God”
Perhaps the most powerful thing you could put on your church sign are quotes taken directly from the Bible. After all, these are the words that have inspired generations to join the church and change their lives.
These passages are some excellent starting points for welcoming visitors to your sanctuary:
“For you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28”
“And he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God and cured those who had need of healing. Luke 9:11”
“Peace be to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be to all you have. 1 Samuel 25:6”
