Kidzone: March 26 Update
Happy Friday, Kidzone Families!
We are entering Holy Week! This weekend is Palm Sunday. Now WHY on earth would we put the name of a TREE in front of the word, “Sunday?” Well, this is the time we remember when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey, and the multitude of disciples began to praise Him JOYFULLY saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” They laid their coats and palm branches down to pave the way for His arrival. You may know the word “Hosanna” associated with this scene, as its’ meaning is “save us, rescue”. And that’s just what Jesus came to do as the Messiah.
As we enter this Easter season, I am praying that you set aside intentional time together as a family to walk through Holy Week! If you didn’t get the Easter Adventures Family devotional, head to our Resource page HERE to access that digitally. Each day there is a brief devotional, questions & short hands-on activities to do with your kids; to grow in their understanding of the way Christ came to save the world of its sin- and to save each one of them personally!
ALSO- check out this FUN video from our friends, the Tsai Family! Here they are creating “Resurrection Rolls” as a way of telling the Easter Story! You can watch it HERE, or on our social platforms starting Sunday! You and your family can also make these: they’re SUPER easy. You can find the recipe and story in the Easter Adventures Family devotional, too. What a great Easter Weekend family activity! Make sure to take some photos and tag us @bridgekidzone! We’d LOVE to see you all taking part!
Also, mark your calendars: on Easter Sunday, April 4th at 10:30am, join Pastor Shauna on our @bridgekidzone Instagram LIVE for a reading of Kids Read Truth’s “This is the Gospel” story. Can’t wait to connect with them!
IT’S COMING! We will be having our FAMILY LUAU DRIVE-THRU event for our kids on Saturday April 17th from 1:00pm-3:30pm at Unionville Alliance Church (UAC front parking lot). You can sign up HERE. Invite a friend to sign up too! And since our first car-decorating contest went SO well at Christmas time, we thought, “let’s do this again- LUAU style!” So get your creative juices flowing and get that vehicle decked out in Hawaiin-themed swag! Another Family Prize pack is to be won! We also want to provide an opportunity for our kids to be ON MISSION, and so for this drive-thru we will be collecting items for the Markham Crisis Pregnancy Centre. If you can bring along a donation from this list, it would be SO greatly appreciated! (brand new only please):
- Diapers (size 5,6,7) OR Pull-ups (size 2T-5T)
- Baby Formula Stage 2 (Enfamil or Similac)
- Baby wash
- Vaseline OR diaper rash cream
- Regular Cheerios
- Baby mum mums
- Arrowroot cookies
We can’t wait to connect with your kids from your vehicles and have some safe Luau-themed games & treats!
Remember, all our weekly curriculum resources, updates and lesson videos are posted on www.kidzoneonline.ca every Friday by 4pm! Make sure to head to our resource page for some Easter Resources!
May this upcoming week be one full of praising Him- blessed is HE who comes in the name of the Lord- Hosanna!
In His Love,
