Bad Church Sign of the Week: Skip Church This Christmas

This Christmas season, please do not welcome your community in the following manner like this week’s church sign:

“Think You Might Be Going to Hell?  

Skip Church on Christmas and Make Sure!

Service 12/24 7:30 PM” 

Any church wants to see high attendance on Christmas, but maybe this method isn’t the best approach.  Christmas is all about Jesus coming to us, not us coming to Jesus.  If we could come to Jesus, Christmas would have never been needed.
