Dear Trinity Family,


Summer can be a time for us to be “on the go,” near and far. As I was looking at our family calendar with trips to Green Lake Bible Camp, mission trips planned to Madison and St. Paul, and a family trip to Canton, Ohio.   Whether your summer plans have trips to the lake, a destination vacation or just time with family.   This summer I'd like you to invite you to take part in the "Flat Jesus Project" to remind us that Jesus is with us wherever we go. 


This project is based on the children’s book Flat Stanley, written by Jeff Brown in 1965. Flat Stanley is the book’s main character - who is accidentally flattened when a bulletin board falls on him. He discovers that being flat has some great advantages - he can travel to places in an envelope! In the 1990s, the “Flat Stanley Project” involved giving children in elementary schools their own paper cutout of Flat Stanley and asking them to write about their adventures together or to mail him off to friends and family in other parts of the have them take pictures and write about the adventures of Stanley. -


We are featuring a cutout figure of Jesus (Flat Jesus) in our newsletter. This is the “Flat Jesus Project.” Because Jesus is always present with you, wherever you may go, you are invited to take him with you this summer… sending pictures back to the church so that everyone can enjoy hearing about one another’s adventures.We hope to receive photos of Flat Jesus from locations near and far. Perhaps you plan to visit to the Children's Museum, a park or a college visit  - take a photo with Flat Jesus, include your name and a comment, and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Maybe your summer will include time at the lake or out for dinner with friends take a photo and send it to us or bring it to worship with you! This visible expression of faith reminds us that Jesus is with us wherever we go!  Jesus does not stay in the church between Sundays, but is also outside the Church with us everyday as we partner with God to do God’s work in the world.


Join us for this fun activity of staying connected this summer and remembering Jesus is with us wherever we go!   Pick up your "Flat Jesus" at worship or use the one included in the newsletter.  Color your "Flat Jesus" and then take Jesus with you.  Many people cover "Jesus with clear contact paper and have Jesus in the car with them as they go on adventures.
