Random Church Sign of the Week

Posted by Holly Whitfield | December 6th 2010 1450 0

The New Olivet Baptist Church on Southern has a reputation for the creative (and often hilarious) sermon titles posted on their sign. This week’s has to be one of my all-time favorites:

New Olivet wants to teach you how to Dougie

I’m not entirely sure what the message of the sermon was, but I hope that everyone learned how to Dougie adequately.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    That is hilarious!

    that’s fantastic! I was in Nashville this weekend and saw “Santa Claus is coming to town, and so is Jesus Christ”
    would be good also to say “Santa is making a list and checking it twice, and so is Jesus Christ.”

    That sign is now my facebook profile picture, for obvious reasons.

  4. […] Earlier this week, I posted a picture of the sign at New Olivet Baptist Church on Southern. Last Sunday’s sermon was called “Teach Me How to Dougie”. Good news […]
