If you’re looking for a sign from God, this is it.

Thousands of people have seen North Pointe’s sign over the past ten years. (Our original sign came to the end of its working life and was replaced by Production World in October 2016.)

First Impressions

Hundreds of people have felt welcomed by the “come as you are” invitation on 167 Ave. Over 16 percent of our guests say they decided to be check us out because of the sign.

Our sign is the first chance we get to tell people who we are, what we value, what we do and if we have a sense of humor.

That’s not nearly everything people need to know about us but its a good start.

Best Or Worst Of Church Signs

If you’ve ever driven by a church with a clever saying on its marquee, you know how important a sign can be.

  • “Call 911: This Church is On Fire!”
  • “Exercise Daily: Walk with the Lord.”
  • “Exposure to the Son May Prevent Burning.”

All of these signs say different things about their church:

  • “We’re charismatic.”
  • “We’re devoted.”
  • “We believe in hell.”

Or “We like cheesy slogans!”

One thing North Pointe promises – no cheesy slogans.2016-10-20 12.23.02
