Church signs

I haven't talked about church planting in a long time. One of the important things that usually takes a lot of creativity is a church sign. Signs are expensive!! But, you want a quality sign that says to the community "Hey, Here we are!!!! We're here to stay!"

When we first came to Iowa, this is what the old church sign looked like:

This sign does not say, "We really want you here!"

So I got busy with an overhead projector, some plywood and paint and painted this one:

Better, huh?

It looks great, Terri! I've used a projector for a Sunday school class wall before, but I don't think I would have thought of it for a sign. Very creative!

We don't have a sign yet, since we still meet in a rec centre. We do have a-frame signs that we put on the corners of the streets leading to the rec centre, and they are done professionally. I'll keep your idea in mind if we ever get to have a sign!
