Funny! Church Ladies with Typewriters

In the “things that make you go, huh?” category… 23 funny quotes from church publications.
Sometimes you just need a laugh to relieve stress during the day. As a writer, I have always gotten a kick out of sentence and structure mistakes that become humorous when read out loud. Certainly they are innocent mistakes, and I have made plenty myself. Please understand, I am not making fun of people who write bulletins for their church or any other type of writer. We are all just doing our best, learning as we go. No matter what, I think it is healthy to be able to laugh at a mistake. Getting upset about it sure doesn’t help.

“The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the Congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday.”

“Low Self Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 PM. Please use the back door.”

The mistakes I am reprinting here were gathered from the Internet. I make no claims of their origin or validity, they could all be made up for all I know, but they are FUNNY.
Which one of these is your favorite? Please comment below. Thank you.


These missteps appeared in church bulletins or were announced in services:

1. The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.
2. The sermon this morning: ‘Jesus Walks on the Water.’ The sermon tonight: ‘Searching for Jesus.’
