Church message: God good, sin bad, too hot to change the sign

Edgemoor Baptist Pastor Rick Miller said the sign has been up for 40 years and served as the "original social media."

CLAXTON, TENN. - A church in East Tennessee is tired of changing their sign in the heat!

Church signs remind us when it's time for worship. They offer best wishes for an ailing congregation member.

And sometimes they slip in a funny or sly message that's hard to get out of your mind. Like at the Edgemoor Baptist Church in Claxton, Tenn.

Noting their ongoing heat wave, someone at the church decided it was just too warm to bother.

So they posted:

"TOO HOT TO KEEP

CHANGING THE SIGN

SIN BAD GOD GOOD

HEAR MORE SUNDAY AT 10 AM"

Amen!

"This is the perfect sign for summer... we all got a big kick out of it," said Edgemoor Baptist member Sharon Yoder, "Some people maybe have the wrong perception about people who go to church. That they’re all stuffy and no fun. This shows them we do know how to have a good time. And laugh!"

Edgemoor Baptist Pastor Rick Miller said the sign has been up for 40 years and served as the "original social media."

"It’s probably the most visible part of our church," Miller said.

Miller's son put up the sign and said it wasn't an original idea.

Last year, a church in nearby North Knoxville made headlines for their witty sign posts.

Washington Heights Baptist Church in North Knoxville often offers an amusing word. Here's one from last year.

Does your church put up hilarious signs in the Inland Northwest? We want to see them! Feel free to post them to our KREM 2 Facebook page.
