Listen carefully. Can you hear the rumble of truck engines?
The Food Trucks are getting ready to roll into Rapid City First United Methodist Church on June 5-8 from 6:00-7:45 pm. Open for all children ages 3 through rising 6th grade.

Bring your appetite and be ready for fun because this year's delicious theme is FOOD TRUCK PARTY- ON A ROLL WITH GOD.
This year's menu is full of fun with friends, stories, games, science and crafts that everyone has come to love at VBS- with the added thrill of Food Truck Treats!

The kits stay in this local area. Thank you!
You can share with a few friends to complete a kit. Place items in a zip-close plastic bag.
  • sunscreen

  • energy bars 
  • beef sticks/jerky
  • powdered energy drink mix
  • wet cleansing towelettes
  • eye drops

If not completing a care kit, donate what you can, and the UMW committee will fill in. (A large number of a single item is not recommended.)
Place kits or items in the correct bin in the parlor.
