Kidzone: May 15 Update

May 15, 2020Kidzone Online

Good Morning, Kidzone Families!

Happy “long weekend!” You made it another week, and we are cheering for you and praying for you each step of the way. I hope and pray that you can enjoy a little bit of extra rest this weekend with the holiday Monday!

Thank you so much for filling out our online camp survey. The results are incredibly helpful for assisting us to plan how we can best meet your needs in this season. We will be proceeding with canceling all in-person camps at the bridge this summer. Your child and family’s health and safety are our top priority. We will be communicating directly with those who registered for summer camps about full refunds. Please stay tuned next week for information regarding some online camp options we will be offering to you this summer! Thank you so much for your grace and patience as we seek to navigate this season with wisdom.

Mark your calendars for this weekend’s ‘Bridge Family Night!’ on Monday, May 18th starting at 5:00pm! I’ll be hosting a “Pajama-Fort-Night!” for the kids—LIVE—on our @bridgekidzone Instagram account. Have your kids create a fun fort that day, and get into their PJs early! At the same time, Pastor Sam will be facilitating a 30-minute Generation Bridge seminar for how we can support kids’ mental health in this season. While our part is from 5-5:30pm, we want to encourage families to follow this time up with questions that Sam will provide, and then make use of the kids’ forts for a fun family night! Dinner, games, movies: however your family enjoys spending time together. Make sure to take photos of your family fort and tag us @bridgekidzone with the hashtag #bridgefamilynight. Register to receive the Zoom link for the seminar at thebridgemarkham.com/familynight.

Don’t forget: if you’ve been feeling socially isolated and are looking for a way to connect in a meaningful way with others, check out our online cafés! On Wednesdays from 2:00-3:00pm there is the “Parenting During Pandemic” café. This week, they will be discussing the topic of “Mindful Parenting”. You can register by visiting https://thebridgemarkham.com/onlinecafe/.  

As usual, 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.thebridgemarkham.com/kidzoneonline/. Check out our Worship Song of the Week, our weekly Mission Challenge, weekly Kidzone Klub devotionals, and more. You can even utilize the new Bridge App to receive Kidzone Online updates by turning on notifications! For Sunday ministry materials, simply scroll down to ‘Kidzone Sunday’ and click on your child’s age group.

Don’t forget to tune in Mondays-Fridays @bridgekidzone on Instagram LIVE! Everyday at 12:30pm we have lunch time stories. If you or your child would like to be a guest reader, please email Christy at clee@thebridgemarkham.com

As always, these resources are a GIFT to help empower you- there is no expectation tied to them! It’s our heart’s desire to help equip you to disciple your kids at home.  

The Lord bless you and keep you: He is FOR you! Please never hesitate to reach out if you or your children need support and prayer.  

In His Love, 
Pastor Shauna
