Meet Flat Phil!


FBC Abilene can stay connected this summer by taking “Flat Phil” with them on their journeys, vacations and adventures.


Paper copies of Flat Phil will be available in Sunday School for anyone to take home and cut out, color, decorate or accessorize as they choose. Then you can take photos of Flat Phil wherever you go over the summer and post the photos to social media with the hashtag #FBCFlatPhil. You can also text the picture to FBC Communications Director Callie Harris at 325-513-9434. The idea is borrowed from the popular children’s book “Flat Stanley,” often used in schools as a geography learning project.


Copies of Flat Phil will also be available in the Welcome Center or for download here: Flat Phil
