The Flat Jesus project is a way to keep our church connected during the summer travel season. It is based on the original “flat” character, Flat Stanley, the star of a book by Jeff Brown in which a boy has remarkable adventures after waking up one day to discover he is flattened to half-an-inch thick. This was the beginning of the Flat Stanley project in schools and from this grew the Flat Jesus project.
Flat Jesus reminds us to keep Christ at the center of our lives even, or especially, when we are far from our church home. As you are out and about this summer, take Jesus along for the adventure! You’ll love taking Flat Jesus out to dinner, to the park, the zoo, Vacation Bible School, exotic locations or wherever you and your family go. Then document your adventures with photos and share them with your CPC family by sending them to email@example.com for posting on CPC's Facebook page.
To create your own Flat Jesus and get started on your adventure, download the template onto heavy cardstock paper if possible. Flat Jesus papers are also available for pick up outside the sanctuary. Get creative with Flat Jesus! Decorate and color him. Make one for a friend, too! Now you’re ready to take Flat Jesus with you and include him in photos of your summer travels. Everyone is invited to participate in this project!
