I live across a little side street from a large Christian Science church. In front of the church, they have one of those church signs with hours of operation, events, and the subject of the next scheduled sermon. I walk by now and then and it's a cool sign; they always have a bible verse, and above that the words "All Are Welcome", and above that the title of the sermon in large letters.

What makes this fun is the way the titles of the sermons often interact with the "All Are Welcome" part. For example,

Mortals and Immortals
All Are Welcome

Sometimes it's "The Damned and the Saved", sometimes it's "Sinners and Saints", sometimes it's "God and Man". Many times, of course, the sermon's title doesn't enumerate any entities who might be welcome, so it's always a nice surprise when they have something that fits.
