Kidzone: January 8 Update
Happy New Year, Kidzone Families!
Welcome to 2021! In 2020, most of you had no idea you would end up working from home, becoming teachers, stepping into the role of being your child’s only playmate, becoming gourmet chefs & bakers, re-kindling your love of the outdoors, and so much more. If you find yourself worn down, worried, or even perhaps a little apathetic and hesitant going into 2021: you are not alone. I wish that I could gift each one of you with a luxurious beach vacation! Please remember to extend yourself grace. Extend teachers grace. Extend your kids grace. Seek the Holy Spirit’s power for this grace. Make it a priority to take care of yourself. As a parent, that phrase seems impossible at times. But it’s just like the oxygen masks on the airplane: by taking care of yourself first, you can better care for those entrusted to you. I am praying this for each and every one of you as we enter 2021. That you would know the comfort and care of our loving Lord & Saviour. That you would cast your burdens on HIM- because He cares so deeply for you!
LUNCH TIME STORIES WILL BE BACK STARTING MONDAY, JANUARY 11th! With the extension of the lockdown and your kids all being home for virtual school, we want to offer a space to gather together to continue to enjoy stories and each other’s presence over lunch-time! If this is something that blesses your family, please tune in! If this is something that is just ‘one more thing’ or doesn’t work for your family: there is no pressure at all. We’ll be having lunch-time stories on Instagram LIVE (@bridgekidzone) on Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 12:30pm-1:00pm, this week and next week.
OUR KIDZONE KONNECTION GROUPS FOR GRADE 1-5 KIDS START BACK UP THIS SUNDAY, JANUARY 10th at 10:30am! If you are still interested in signing your child up, it’s not too late! Please visit Kidzone Online for more information on these bi-weekly groups, and go ahead and fill out the quick online permission form HERE. This is a one-time form that will not only give your child permission to participate any time during this year, but will also keep you in the communication loop with the Zoom link from your child’s Kidzone Konnect leader sent 1-2 days prior to the meet time. We can’t wait to connect with your kids!
Did you check out last week’s “Parenting Power Moment” from our friend Emily Gendi? Head on over to our Instagram or Facebook page to watch Emily’s video. The purpose of this series on social media is to provide encouragement to you as parents: to equip you with a practical tool or tip to help support your kids’ mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health as we continue on during the winter season. If you don’t already follow us on Instagram or Facebook, be sure to check out our linktree to access those accounts HERE.
Our weekly Kidzone updates and Sunday experiences are updated on our website by Friday at 4pm. You can find all that you will need for your child, according to the headings, by visiting: www.kidzoneonline.ca
In His Love,
