Surf Shack: Catch the Wave of God’s Amazing Love 

June 27-July 1, 2016; 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

At the Surf Shack VBS children will dive in as they learn to catch the wave of God’s amazing love. Kids get ‘amped’ to learn God Creates, Helps, Loves, Calms, and Sends. On this ride, kids Remember that the Lord is great and awesome! (Nehemiah 4:14b CEB).  At the Surf Shack VBS, kids experience God’s Word in surprising and unforgettable ways!

Vacation Bible School is for preschoolers (ages 4 and 5) and children entering K-5 in the Fall.

Children in 6th grade and older are invited to volunteer for the week.

We also need parent volunteers!


Registration is now open. Payments may be be made via check. Please make all checks payable to SDUMC and write VBS on the memo line.

The registration fee is $40 per child, and $25 for each additional child in the same household.
Optional T-shirt is available for $5.00 for all children who register before June 10th.

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Summer 2016:

Our exciting summer get-together will be action-packed! Each day we will start by gathering in Founder’s Hall for the opening celebration. Then children will rotate with his/her group to our fun stations: Arts & Crafts, Science, Story Telling, Music and Games & Snacks.  All groups will return to Founder’s Hall for closing time.

Sunday, July 3rd– Song Performance:

The children will be performing their VBS song at the 9:00 a.m. church service in Founders Hall. Following the performance, the children are welcome to join our regularly scheduled SDUMC Sunday School classes, continuing fellowship with their VBS friends. And we invite you to stay and join us in worship.

Please look for a Welcome Letter that will provide information about drop-off and pick-up, classroom assignments, daily schedules, snack schedule, what to wear, mission project, volunteer opportunities and donations.


We look forward to sharing this wonderful week with everyone! For questions or to register please contact the Director of Student and Family Ministries, Chelsea Simon at chelsea@encinitaschurch.com.
