Climb Aboard the "Rocky Railway" June 7-11

posted on May 07

Dear Parents:

Send your kids on a mountaintop adventure!
At Rocky Railway VBS, kids discover Jesus’ power can pull them through life’s ups and downs. Rocky Railway is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on and we’ll be outside, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings®. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!

Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project, through a program called Operation Kid-to-Kid™, that will provide alpacas to families in need in Ecuador, South America.

Plus, everyone will get a Rocky Railroad t-shirt, so be sure to include your child's size on the registration form and turn it in by May 17.

So mark these dates on your calendar:  Monday-Friday, June 7-11, 2021.
The fun starts at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 11:30 a.m.
All children age 3 (potty trained) through grade 5 are invited. Invite your friends, relatives, & neighbors!

Rocky Railway will be held outside at Thompson Park this year with Covid safety precautions practiced. Please pray for good weather, but if we have to cancel or make last minute site adjustments because of weather, we will make that decision by 7:00 am and make an announcement on Facebook and the church website. To help with maintaining personal space, we ask each child to bring a beach blanket to sit on.

To register:  Download and fill out the registration form or call this number 507-553-5453 to register your child(ren) for this life-changing adventure! Registrations due Monday, May 17. Because we want to be able to be Covid-safe, we will be limiting the number of registrations to 50. So, get your registrations in ASAP to assure your child(ren) will be able to attend.

There is a $5.00 per child registration fee due on the first day of VBS. To speed up registration on the first day, please pay ahead of time by including cash or check with your registration form; online at (select the VBS fund); or with the GivePlus mobile app (download from your app store). Scholarships are available if requested.
