Kidzone: August 13 Update

Aug 13, 2021Kidzone Online

Hey Kidzone Families!

Did you know that Saturday is National Creamsicle Day? I didn’t either; but it is! Try to enjoy an ice cold creamsicle this weekend, and have some slower and sweet moments together as a family!

VERY IMPORTANT: As the Fall approaches, we would be so grateful if you would spend a couple of minutes to share with us your heart, feelings, and thoughts when it comes to your child’s participation in Children’s Ministry at the bridge this Fall! You can access the survey to share with us HERE. Please only complete ONE per family. We are EXCITED for all God will continue to do in the hearts and lives of our kids! We want to provide you with an opportunity to share safely and authentically with us, and also a platform where we can gather helpful information that will help us navigate the beginning of this new ministry year. We TRULY VALUE hearing from you. We know that there are so many unknowns with school starting back in-person. We know that we all are coming from different situations, contexts, health backgrounds, and more.  And we also know that as the church body, we are one in Jesus! We choose to clothes ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience toward one another. We desire to extend grace, truth and time. Thank you so much for your willingness to share with us! We love your kids so very much, and are praying diligently for God’s wisdom in the coming weeks and months as we plan. 

This is also the last call for our graduating Grade 5’s to sign up for their “Grad Fun Fair!” happening next Friday August 20th from 4:30-6:30pm at Unionville Alliance’s parking lot! If you haven’t signed up yet, please head HERE and do ASAP! We are thrilled to be able to celebrate our Grade 5’s and create an environment for them to begin to get to know some of their VIBE and bridge youth leaders! 

This is the third week for our series, “GOD’S GOOD PLANS”! We are using video-based curriculum from Saddleback Church! These are broken into 2 categories: Early Childhood (2s-SK kids), and Elementary (Grade 1-5 kids). You’ll also still notice some of our familiar faces each week in the videos, as we have worked to keep a personal touch with our own Kidzone volunteers sharing about something called the” SUMMER LOVE CHALLENGE!” These are weekly challenges (the same challenge for both age groups), of practical ways for your kids to love your neighbors and community as a family. This fulfills our “GO!” mission at the bridge! Keep watch on social media each Sunday, as we’ll also be posting the weekly challenges there. We would love to re-post and share pictures of your kids’ participation!

As usual, these video lesson and family resource postings will be updated by Fridays at 4pm on Kidzone Online. 

In His Love,
Pastor Shauna
