The Douglas Mennonite Church is taking advantage of the playoffs with some clever signs aimed at Jets fans.

The church's playoff marquee reads, "YES JESUS SAID LOVE YOUR ENEMIES YES THIS PROBABLY INCLUDES ANAHEIM,"  before following that gem up with another which stated, "PRAYER MEETING WEDNESDAY 8:30 PM MTS CENTRE"
