That Sign Said What?


Driving home today I did a double take and nearly caused an accident when I saw this sign. I sat there staring from my drivers seat mouth agape thinking this maybe something got lost in the translation from korean to english, then this some intense marketing and the church is really taking @timasteven’s book “Pop Goes The Church” to extremes to reach people. (Love you Tim.)

Of course the sign was defiled by vandals and while funny it goes to show how important church marketing and branding is needed, because signs like this have been dead since the Petra’s last note in the 80’s. Something we should try to be very intentional with is how is the church perceived, because it not about who your church says they are…it’s about who your church is and how it’s viewed.

Regardless, I think it’s going to be an interesting Sunday at the Korean Presbyterian Church of Lawton.

  1. Before I became a Christian we vandalized a church sign in front of St. Peter's Lutheran Church. God, I am still sorry.

    I once saw a Taco Bell sign where someone had removed the letter "C" from the phrase, "NOW HIRING: CLOSERS"


    • LOSERS! I saw one a few weeks back and I was sans iPhone or any photo equipment which read: "Bible you don't need a Bible when we God invented Google."

  7. Vent: I hate cute sayings on church signs. Why don't we just dress up as the easter bunny and throw fortune cookies w/ verses in them. Same effect.
