Week Some of you may remember a couple of summers ago when we encouraged you to take Jesus with you everywhere with the Flat Jesus project. Well, we thought it might be just the thing to bring Flat Jesus back. All you need to do is:
- pick one of the Flat Jesus templates, print it out (cardstock works best) laminate him if you can, and attach him to some kind of stick. Then,
- pay attention to the Children’s Sermons starting on Sunday, June 7 or check your E-News each week to see what adventure we’re asking you to take with Flat Jesus that week. Then,
- take a picture/video of yourself and Flat Jesus on that adventure and post it to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hastag #SJLCFlatJesus2020.
We’ll have those pictures running during the prelude for the following weeks worship service. While we strongly encourage our children to participate- anyone can play along!
Weeks 9-12- Choose Your Own Adventure August!- For the rest of August you can choose your own adventure! Grab Flat Jesus and show us what adventures you have! Maybe it's reading a book, hiking, gardening, playing a game, swimming, riding your bike, whatever the adventure, take Flat Jesus along and send us a pic each week!
Week 8- July 26- August 2- Our adventure with Flat Jesus this week is culinary. Sit down with Flat Jesus at a meal, say a prayer together and eat! Take a pic of Jesus eating with you and share it with all of us. And then maybe share the recipe for that chocolate cake!
Week 7- July 19- July 26- Show Flat Jesus the favorite view from your house. Where do you love to be and at what time during the day? Take a pic of Flat Jesus sharing that view and share it with us!

Week 1- June 7-13- Color or paint on some large paper or old cardboard box, or create a background for Jesus so it looks like he's somewhere else. You can make it a real place, or some fantastical place, Whatever you want! Then, post your picture!
