Kidzone: June 18 Update
This is the last call to sign up for the kidzone drive-thru family luau celebration!
You don’t want to miss this! We are thrilled to get to see your kids face to face! It’s all happening on Friday, June 25th from 5:00-7:30pm at Unionville Alliance Church’s 16th Ave. facing parking lot. Gather your family to participate in our Hawaiian-themed car decorating contest, games, win some prizes, bring donation items for the Markham Stouffville Crisis Pregnancy Center, drop off your family offering envelope, connect safely with volunteers, and more! Please head to the link HERE for all the information, and to sign-up! Please use your child(ren)’s name(s) and family name when you sign-up. This will help us to know how many to prepare for! Register for your time slot by MONDAY! We can’t WAIT!
You’re going to notice a change this week to our weekly lesson videos for the summer quarter! We’re going to be 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 will be embarking on a series over the next few weeks called, “DARING FAITH!” These are taught in developmentally appropriate ways for each age group. You’ll notice some elements of repetition that are new & different from our Gospel Light lessons (ie: repeated memory verse for the series, worship song with the memory verse, etc…). In addition, there is a parent devotional for YOU each week, to be able to connect with the learning your kids are doing. 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 groupings), of practical ways for your kids to love your neighbors and community as a family. This fulfills our “GO” mission at the bridge, and is a great connection to the Neighborhood Love campaign our Lifegroups are currently partaking in (with a childlike spin). Keep watch on social media each Sunday, as we’ll also be posting the weekly challenges there, and 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 checked out our Resource Page? There are some fun Father’s Day resources for you to access to thank all the awesome dads out there this Sunday! Check it out HERE.
DON’T FORGET: OUR VIRTUAL CAMP REGISTRATION FOR THIS SUMMER IS OPEN! We’d love ALL our kids and families to join in this summer’s BOLT VBS option (which has no attendee limit!) As Covid restrictions ease and things become safer, we will be encouraging you to join with friends, family or Lifegroups 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 soon!
Our LAST lunch-time stories will be Wednesday June 23rd from 12:30-1:00pm on Instagram LIVE (@bridgekidzone)! We’d love for you to join us for one last time together before the end of the school year!
Can’t wait to see you all at the Drive-Thru Luau! Praying for endurance, strength, and reliance on our awesome God in this last week of school. You’re almost there!
In His Love,
