Kidzone: August 6 Update

Aug 6, 2021Kidzone Online

“Totally….totally….totally AD’s, YA!” Thank you SO much to those who participated in this year’s BOLT VBS! It was so awesome to dive into learning about the early church, and to learn from those lives that were COMPLETELY transformed by the power of Jesus. OUR lives can ALSO be transformed by Him! What a hope filled promise and truth! If you took pictures but haven’t had a chance to send them to us or to post and tag us @bridgekidzone, make sure to do so! It was so great to see so many families participating together and inviting their friends to safely join in the fun and learning. Remember, our mission project for the week was to decide as a family what could be given to our bridge “Water for Life” project. It’s not too late! You can find the link to donate HERE. 

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 HEREPlease 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. 

If your child is interested in Baptism, but you haven’t yet filled out the form HERE or contacted me, please do so! I’d love to follow up with your family and journey with your child in this big step of outwardly sharing that they have decided to follow Jesus. God is good!

This is the second 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. 

Praying for you all as we enter this second half of summer!

In His Love,
Pastor Shauna
