Kidzone: July 2 Update
Hope and pray you are all soaking up this long weekend and the first “official” week of summer!
JUST in case you missed it last Friday, our winner of the Drive-Thru Luau Car Decorating Contest was the LEE Family! Talk about creative and fully committed to the theme! We also were able to collect over 10 boxes full of donations for the Markham Stouffville Crisis Pregnancy Center. Thank you SO much for your generosity and willingness to bless our partners there. What a JOY it was so see all your kids and connect with one another!
We’re going on Week #3 of our weekly lesson videos for the summer quarter! Just in case you missed it, 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). Both age groups are participating in a series over the next few weeks called, “DARING FAITH!” 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 neighbours and community as a family. This fulfills our “GO!” mission at the bridge, and is a great connection to our LifeGroup Ministry and the Neighbourhood Love campaign that happened in June (with a childlike spin). 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.
HAVE YOU SIGNED UP FOR THE “TOTALLY 80s” BOLT VBS YET? We’d love ALL our kids and families to join in the fun! This will be running from August 3rd to 6th, but also has flexibility for when your family takes part together! It’s about a 1-1.5hr commitment each day. As Covid restrictions ease and things become safer, we want to encourage you to join with friends, family or LifeGroups in your backyard to participate in this TOGETHER! You can access the Online Camps website HERE, or head to bridgeconnect.ca. More information regarding BOLT VBS will be coming to you VERY soon, so sign up TODAY!
May you have many sweet and joy-filled moments rooted in Christ’s love this weekend.
In His Love,
