Church Sign Epic Fails, Volume Seventeen

Today’s church signs are available baked, boiled, fried or au gratin…

Yes, a real church.

Nothing quite like being trapped and prayed for.

Location, location, location.

A fail whether on purpose or by accident.

No kidding!

The latest failed attempt at cultural relevance, hip hop style.

Tell me they didn't think this one through.

Aweome. I may be stealing this one.

I was enjoying some soft fabric, and the next thing I know, I'm in hell...

    I’m thinking that some mischievous devotee of the Flying Spaghetti Monster had a hand in creating the next-to-last one.

    My church ducked a sign fail.  We had sold part of our property to a developer who was going to put a small building with stores and offices, including a furniture store.  The developer thought we we have an easier time with the zoning department if we just had one sign on the property and offered to pay for a sign big enough for us to share.  We realized that they meant well but we declined the offer.  We realized, even if the developer didn’t, that no matter how they arranged the sign it was going to look like the furniture store was sponsoring the church: “Our Church, brought to you by Joe’s Furniture”.  Or that the church ran the furniture store.

    We have one of those IHOP churches close to my house. I always called it the pancake church.
