Vacation Bible Camp! (formerly VBS) – July 25-29!
Ready to cook up some fun? First UMC Santa Monica’s Food Truck Party Vacation Bible Camp invites children of all ages to get on a roll with God as a parade of Food Trucks rolls into our neighborhood for the summer’s biggest party!

Throughout the week, we will explore the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 6:11; “Give us this day our daily bread.” These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it’s by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met. This adventure includes exciting music, amazing science, creative crafts, fun recreation, a mission project and memorable Bible stories to help children grow in faith and prayer.  

At the center of the Food Truck Party is a special food truck called “On a Roll.” Here, our Kid Chefs will learn from the food truck’s Top Chef, along with DJ Cupcake (an adorable cupcake puppet), about the Daily Specials (Daily Learnings), which are lines from the well-loved prayer that teaches us to turn to God to meet our needs.
