The Adventures of Flat Jesus!

“Flat Jesus” is a way to stay connected during the summer travel season.

Print out Flat Jesus, color him in, and take a of picture of him wherever you go!

You’ll love taking FLAT JESUS out to dinner with you, on vacation, to the beach, to hang with your family, and when you meet new friends and neighbors all over town! It’s an amazing adventure. Take Flat Jesus with you and see what happens.

How to create your very own Flat Jesus

Download our template (the file cumc flat jesus.pdf is below) and print out a copy (you might want to use heavy card stock). If you print it double sided the address of our Facebook page will print out to remind you to upload the photos you take.

Be creative! Decorate Flat Jesus. Think about what, if anything, his robe should say. What color and type of hair does your Flat Jesus have? What color skin tone? Any accessories?

Make one for yourself and one for a friend!

Take photos with Flat Jesus through the summer wherever you go!

Share your photos with us by uploading them to our facebook page at

You can also email your Flat Jesus photos directly to Pastor Sarah at if you have trouble uploading to facebook.

Talk with family and friends about what you and Flat Jesus experienced.

Helpful hint: if you have access to a laminating machine, laminate your Flat Jesus. This way if he attempts to walk on water or spills a lot of wine, he’ll be protected!
