"Life is a puzzle--Jesus is the missing piece" and "When you're down to nothing, God is up to something" are examples of clever church signs. Other examples include, "Need a lifeguard? Ours walks on water!" and "Why pay for GPS? Jesus gives directions for free!"
Some churches use sayings that refer to God living in modern society, such as "God wants full custody, not just weekend visitation" and "For God so loved the world that he didn't send a committee." Other examples include "God is rich because he saves" and "If God is your co-pilot, you'd better switch seats!"
Other churches use sayings that reflect the season or weather conditions. The McDonaldville St. Paul Methodist Church put "Whoever is praying 4 snow pleez stop!" on its sign with snow piled around it. The First United Methodist Church used "Too cold to change sign! Message inside." Other seasonal messages for church signs include "Autumn leaves. Jesus doesn't" and "Fall for Jesus. He is truly unbe-leaf-able." "I'm also making a list and checking it twice.--God" is appropriate for the Christmas season.
Clever church signs may also refer to Bible stories, such as "Noah should have swatted those 2 mosquitoes!" Another example is "Don't give up! Moses was once a basket case, too!"
