Kidzone: January 7 Update

Jan 7, 2022Kidzone Online

It is difficult to believe we find ourselves amidst strict social gathering limits, online learning, and constant pivots and changes to life as we enter this new year of 2022. It is not what we expected! It is certainly not what we wanted! I know that most of us are weary and tired. Rightfully so! It has been ever so difficult. AND: we continue to place our HOPE in Jesus. We continue to lay our burdens at His ever-merciful and grace-filled feet: our beautiful Saviour. We pray for His comfort and peace for our hearts and minds each new challenging day. Rest assured you have a church that faithfully prays for you and your children, and lifts you before God each new day!

We wanted to provide you a little update on where we are at in terms of Covid-response measures in Kidzone. Our Kidzone Leadership Team and Covid-Response Team made the decision to pause in-person Kidzone until at least January 30th (9th, 16th & 23rd are paused). We will re-visit the decision at that time.

We are grateful to God that we felt led by the Holy Spirit to begin this new school year with our Online Kidzone Konnection groups that meet every Sunday at 10 am; for kids to take part in weekly lessons in community with one another and a leader. These begin again THIS SUNDAY, January 9th at 10 am, so make sure you mark your calendars! We start a new series this week! (see below).

We also have an upcoming Online Parent Seminar that we’d be honoured for you to join us for. We will be hosting Leanne Cabral once again, this time to share with us about Navigating Family Stress. This was decided upon in late November, not knowing what the beginning of 2022 was going to bring! God is so good to bring us encouragement through Leanne’s expertise. You can register for January 17th at 8 pm on or by clicking HERE.

We are heading into our FIRST week of a NEW 5-week Saddleback kids’ series: “MIRACLES!” This week we are looking at when ‘Jesus Calms the Storm.’ He demonstrates His power to us in so many ways and takes care of US in every storm. Where can you see His power at work around you? Look for it! This is a timely message for all of us!

As usual, these video lesson and family resource postings will be updated by Fridays at 4 pm on Kidzone Online. If you’re unable to attend in person, make sure to track with us online!

Don’t hesitate to reach out if I can support you in any way.

In His Love,
Pastor Shauna
