Vacation Bible School (K-5th grade)

This year’s VBS: Food Truck Party β€œOn a Roll with God!” is sure to be energizing and uplifting for grades 1 through 6. It is scheduled for June 6th – 9th from 9:00am – 12 noon. This will be a fun packed four days! Our VBS invites children to pray as Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:11; “Give us this day our daily bread.” These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God β€” and that it’s by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met. Space is limited to 30 participants in addition to regular attending GCUMC children. Registration Forms are available from from the Church Office, and can also be emailed upon request. Any questions, please contact Linda Clise at or (480)982-3776.
