Kidzone: August 14 Update
Good Friday, Kidzone Families!
Can you believe we are half way through August? I know that as the weeks creep toward the Fall, there are many mixed emotions. I appreciated how a contributor of Parent Cue, a great online resource for parents, put it: “What we know about this upcoming school year and what it will bring? Nothing… And that is hard. It’s okay if you are feeling a little lost right now: you are not alone!” We are praying for wisdom, discernment and peace for each of you as you make decisions for what is best for your kids and families this upcoming school year. Our awesome God knows each and every one of your needs, and He is in control. Never hesitate to reach out if we can support you or pray for you specifically in any way!
For those who participated in an online camp this summer, would you please head to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PTS8PK3 and fill out the 2 minute feedback survey (one time per family). This feedback is valuable, as we will share it with our partners and use it to inform future decisions regarding online camp offerings! Thank you in advance for your time.
Kidzone is partnering with OnMission & Host Ministries to participate in a BACKPACK DRIVE for some families in need within the York Region School Board over the next few weeks. This is a fantastic way to fulfill the ‘GO’ part of our mission at the bridge, and also a great ministry opportunity for your family to practice putting God’s love into action! Head to: thebridgemarkham.com/carepackage [site will be live by Sunday morning] for the list of simple supplies that are needed to collect in a backpack for a child this September! After putting that together as a family, you can drop it off during one of the drive-thru drop-off times: Saturday, August 29, 10:00am-12:00pm OR Wednesday, September 2nd, 6:30-8:30pm. Physical distancing and proper safety precautions will be in place.
As usual, our weekly Kidzone updates and Sunday experiences are updated on our website by Friday at 4:00pm. You can find all that you will need for your child, according to the headings, by visiting: thebridgemarkham.com/kidzoneonline/. It’s our heart’s desire to help equip you to disciple your kids at home.
• Kidzone Klub devotionals: This week we had Luke sharing about KINDNESS! Next week we hear from our friend Jeffrey sharing all about the fruit GENTLENESS! Don’t miss these on Instagram, Facebook or on thebridgemarkham.com/kidzoneonline/
• We continue to gather for lunch-time stories on Instagram LIVE on Wednesdays at 12:30pm! If you or your child would like to be a guest reader, please email Christy at [email protected]
May you know and experience the power of God’s loving kindness this week! We love each of you and pray for you all regularly. Never hesitate to reach out if we can support you in any way.
In His Love,
