Time to laugh!


Since the holidays, we have been on a church theme, so now enjoy these funny announcements and excerpts from various church bulletins! We know at the J-T how important proofreading is. Clearly, it wasn’t done here. I know you are familiar with some of these people.
“The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.”
“Scouts are saving aluminum cans, bottles and other items to be recycled. Proceeds will be used to cripple children.”
“The sermon this morning: ‘Jesus Walks on the Water.’ The sermon tonight: ‘Searching for Jesus.’”
“Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.” (Well OK!)
“Don’t let worry kill you off – let the Church help.”
“Miss Charlene Mason sang ‘I will not pass this way again,’ giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.”
“For those of you who have children and don’t know it, we have a nursery downstairs.”
“Next Thursday there will be try-outs for the choir. They need all the help they can get.”
And this follows – “At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be ‘What Is Hell?’ Come early and listen to our choir practice.”
“Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.” (They couldn’t mean that!)
“A bean supper will be held on Tuesday evening in the church hall. Music will follow.”
(They are really picking on the choir; here we go again.) “Eight new choir robes are currently needed due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones.”
“Please place your donation in the envelope along with the deceased person you want remembered.”
“The church will host an evening of fine dining, super entertainment and gracious hostility.” (What did I say abut proofreading?)
“Pot-luck supper Sunday at 5 p.m. – prayer and medication to follow.” (Proofreading again)
“The ladies of the church have cast-off clothing of every kind. They may be seen in the basement on Friday afternoon.”
“This evening at 7 p.m. there will be a hymn singing in the park across from the church. Bring a blanket and come prepared to sin.” (Sing, perhaps?)
“The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday.” (Griddles work better, I think.)
“Low Self-Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 p.m. Please use the back door.”
“The eighth-graders will be presenting Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the church basement Friday at 7 p.m. The congregation is invited to attend this tragedy.”
“Weight Watchers will meet at 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church. Please use large double door at the side entrance.”
And this one just about sums them all up – “The Associate Pastor unveiled the church’s new campaign slogan last Sunday: ‘I Upped My Pledge – Up Yours.”
