Good News United Methodist

Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive on God’s word and are anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms during Shipwrecked VBS June 25-28 at Good News United Methodist Church in Santa Rosa Beach.

It will be for students who have completed grades PreK4 through third. Older students may volunteer with a parent or adult sponsor.

Kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible points and immerse them in new adventures. A day at Shipwrecked includes Bible Discovery, KidVid Cinema, Imagination Station, Tropical Treats, Ship Rec Games and more.

One of the best parts of Shipwrecked VBS is the award-winning music. Kids will want to listen to fun songs, like Soon and Very Soon, A Million Reasons, Eye of the Storm, Rescue Me, I Am and more, over and over again.

Early bird pricing is $20/child. Regular pricing is $25 beginning May 15. This fee covers their snacks and a T-shirt. If you are unable to pay the registration fee, scholarships are available. Please contact the kids minister at 850-622-9191, ext 308, for more information, or register at www.goodnewsumc.com/vbs.
