Flat Jesus Project

2020 Flat Jesus Project

What is the “Flat Jesus Project”? It is a chance to bring Jesus with you as you and your family do local service projects or while you are traveling. (A list of local service projects is below.) It is a chance to be a witness for Jesus in your everyday life. It is a fun way to involve all family members, neighbors and friends in witnessing your belief in Jesus Christ.

How do you witness with Flat Jesus? By taking the Flat Jesus everywhere you go and, if possible, take a photo with Him. If you want to just place Jesus somewhere and take a photo that would be good too. Submit your photos to Lisa at church via email at dce.lisa@trinitynorthfield.org, along with any caption you’d like to submit, and we will post these photos in our Flat Jesus Project website album and on our Facebook page. Our goal is to have Jesus in as many places as possible. If you have a relative in another state or country, send Jesus to them and let them join in the fun!
