Many churches have church signs out front that portray inspiring and sometimes funny messages that are intended to intrigue passers-by. The NACBA MultiBrief Weekly Update from a couple of weeks ago highlighted a story from The Gadsden Times that talks about Rainbow Church of Christ in Gadsden, AL. The church has seen a lot of feedback from people who have driven by their sign and have gotten a true sense of how much of an impact it can make.
“We show our phone number as a part of the message, and drivers often use their cellphones to enroll,” said Ray Cox, of Rainbow. One woman had even changed her mind about suicide after reading the weekly message that said, “HANG IN THERE.”
We don’t always realize how important our good deeds can be to others, no matter how big or how small. It’s cool to see how this one church has made a point to put up a message come rain or shine. If you haven’t seen the story, be sure to check it out here.
