After much prayerful consideration and discussion,
we have made the very difficult decision to
cancel Rocky Railway VBS
at Hyde Park United Methodist this summer.
The safety and health of our kids, families, staff and volunteers continues to be our top priority, and we did not feel we could safely host an on campus VBS of our size this summer.
We also recognize that the ‘magic’ of VBS is the experience. The in-person energy, the relationships that are built with each other and the pure fun of playing, singing, worshiping and learning about Jesus together. Those aspects would be almost impossible to replicate in a virtual way. We also know from talking to our families that there is an increasing palpable fatigue and weariness with virtual experiences right now.
As you have already registered and paid for 2020 VBS, you have two options:
1) You can turn your registration fee in to a donation* to support the ongoing ministries of the church. Click here to donate your 2020 VBS registration. We believe God transforms every gift into a blessing for others and we are grateful you have chosen to partner with us in our mission to Make God’s Love Real.
2) You can request a refund (less a 5% processing fee).

*If we do not hear back from you by June 10, 2020, we will assume you want to convert your child’s registration fee into a donation to the church (option 1 above).
Still want the music to Rocky Railway? You can order it from Group.
