Church Advertising Fun

Unknown church in Toronto, Canada.Image via Wikipedia What can we learn about Christian churches from how they advertise themselves? At the very least, we should be able to tell something about how they see themselves and the sort of people they are hoping to attract. I received a fantastic ad in my mailbox recently from a local church. One side featured the words, "Kingdom Come: Understanding the End of the World" in capital letter surrounded by a regal looking border. But the other side...well, the other side was even better.

I flip over the ad, not knowing what to expect. Here is what I found, spelling and grammatical errors intact:
Join us Sundays in April as we explore these and more...

THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES
ARMADGEDDON: THE EARTH'S LAST BATTLE
MARK OF THE BEAST: A LOOK AT ANTICHRIST
RAPTURE: THE BLESSED HOPE

Join us Wednesdays in April as we explore these current events and Bible Prophesy...

666: SATAN'S MASTER PLAN
2 BILLION TO DIE
THE PROPHETIC DESTINY OF EUROPE
MIDEAST PEACE
Odd that they are promoting April events here in September, but I assume that is just another typo. I sit here looking at the add and wondering how scared I should be. These people are my neighbors!
