Best Ideas for New Year’s Sign Sayings for Church

The Reason Signs Are Important

Church signs are a great way to communicate with people who don’t go to your church. It is essential to have a church sign that displays the heart of your Church while engaging the community around you. People should drive by your physical or digital display and feel a certain way. They should feel encouraged, challenged, or humored by the sign that your church is presenting to the world. 

When it comes to choosing a sign for the new year, usually you want it to be a fresh idea; something new to catch people’s attention. In this article we have split the types of signs into a few different categories to help you choose which sign type is best for you. 

If your church has a more laid-back culture than maybe a funny sign is best for you, or if your church is focusing on inspiring people, you could choose from on of the inspirational quotes. People need a good-laugh or some encouragement in the New Year, so you can provide that for them. 

The Church sign is a great way to meet the needs of your community through laughter, encouragement, scripture exposure, or simply an invite. It is an asset that you can choose to attract new people to your church and reframe Christianity for them. It might just be a sign, but if utilized effectively it can truly have an eternal impact on people’s lives. 

It can be a challenge to come up with church marquees that are effective, and that is why in this article, we’ll be talking about the best church sign ideas for the New Year. After this article, we hope that your church finds an effective way to level up your Church’s sign.

Inspirational Quotes:

Bible Verses:

Putting a Bible verse from the word of God on your custom church signs is the best way to share encouraging scriptures with people who don’t go to your church. Bible verses are usually pretty long, so we recommend doing a Bible verse only for digital church signs that have enough room. 

When it comes to choosing the Bible verses for the new year, we recommend choosing verse that talk about the new life or the prosperity that God has called Christians to. It is a good reminder during the new year that God wants to prosper His people.

With all of that being said, here are the best Bible verses for your church’s custom signs.

  1. “3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3
  2. “17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
  3. “19 And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart” Ezekiel 11:19
  4. “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
  5. “And though you started with little, you will end with much.” Job 8:7
  6. “11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
  7. “31 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” Romans 8:31
  8. “5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:5
  9. “But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.” Isaiah 43:18
  10. “9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Colossians 3:9-10

Funny Church Sign Sayings:

An even better way of capturing the attention of the people driving by is with a witty saying on your church signs. Your sign is a great place to display the light-hearted culture of your church, so by putting a funny saying, people might be more attracted to your church. 

A quick caution though, make sure you clear the funny saying with your church leaders. Most people are okay with joking, but some leaders would rather you stay away from comical bits about the Bible. Just make sure your pastors are okay with the saying that you choose, so that you can stay in good standing with your leadership. 

There are a few options here, so we encourage you to choose one that fits your church’s sense of humor. Not every church thinks the same things are funny, but with this list, we hope you can find at least a couple of quotes that are good enough for you to use for your church’s signage.
