This is a sign I built for our small house chuch. My wife is the pastor. It’s a simple sign, 48X48 plywood, with a 18×48 top section with cedar singles. I made the letters for “Passion For Chirst Community Church” with MS Publisher and then transfered it to the 3/4 pine and cut them out with my scrollsaw. The rest of the lettering I used a router template from Milescraft for cutting letters into wood I traced the letters on to the wood and then painted the letters. I painted everything with an exterior primer then 2 coats of exterier gloss. The letters have the same primer and two coats of gloss, then I fastened the letters with silicone and 18 guage nails.

If your ever in Rhinelander drop by we’d love to see you.

Thanks for looking and God Bless

Great sign…
I would like to tell you though, if the Pastor wants an ‘upgrade’ on the font used (when it is time for a new sign years down the road), it really isn’t that hard to freehand route fonts you can get off the internet~~breaking the chains of the (good, but..) Milescraft signn~na~ma~jigger~

I dig it~~Great scroll work too!

I like the name of the church: Passion for Christ.
Raymond the sigh looks very nice and I like the small roof also.
Your wife is a pastor, my wife is the chaplain in the largest county jail in the nation, 24/2600 inmates and the staff.
Good job.
Have a blessed day.
