Church Bulletin Bloopers

Clean humor, jokes, sayings, quotes, and gifts.

Sometimes we know what we want to say, but end up saying something completely different, and hilarious, because we mixed up the words or made a typo.  Church bulletin bloopers are a favorite source of these funnies because we all feel that church is a serious place.  But God gave us a sense of humor and, we think, these 101 church bulletin bloopers are a fine example of that!

To be honest, we could have had more, but we eliminated some to stick to our family-friendly clean humor goal.

  • For those of you who have children and don’t know it, we have a nursery downstairs.

  • The ‘Over 60s Choir’ will be disbanded for the summer with the thanks of the entire church.
  • The missionary from Africa speaking at Calvary Memorial Church in Racine: Name: Bertha Belch.  Announcement: “Come tonight and hear Bertha Belch all the Way from Africa.”

As you read this list of church bulletin mistakes, maybe take time to say a silent prayer for the church secretary that made the blooper.  Hopefully, now, they can laugh about it as much as we can!

  • Ushers will eat latecomers.
  • The outreach committee has enlisted 25 visitors to make calls on people who are not afflicted with any church.

  • The Rev. Merriwether spoke briefly, much to the delight of the audience.

I guess, just like any other writing, you can’t proofread a church bulletin too often.  It seems no matter how many times or how many people look over the bulletin, a blooper is going to sneak through that won’t be caught until the entire congregation can read it.

  • Next Sunday is the family hayride and bonfire at the Fowlers.  Bring your own hot dogs and guns.  
  • The service will close with Little Drops of Water.  One of the ladies will start quietly and the rest of the congregation will join in.
  • Next Sunday a special collection will be taken to defray the cost of the new carpet.  All those wishing to do something on the carpet should come forward and do so.

We can all see the funny church signs outside as we drive past or walk by, but church bulletin bloopers usually require parking yourself in a pew.  Since we can’t get to every church and see every bulletin typo, this list gives us a chance to read a lot of them.

  • The church is glad to have with us today as our guest minister the Rev. Green, who has Mrs. Green with him.  After the service, we request that all remain in the sanctuary for the Hanging of the Greens.
