Kidzone: November 20 Update
Happy Friday, Kidzone Families!
Do we ever have some exciting news for you….CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Though it will look different this year, we are PUMPED to share some exciting opportunities for connecting with your kids this season! Also, stay tuned next week when we update our online resource page with lots of great family Advent & Christmas devotionals, activities and more for the upcoming season.
But first… YOU are invited to our KIDZONE CHRISTMAS DRIVE-THRU on Saturday, December 12th between 1:00-3:30pm at Unionville Alliance Church’s front parking lot! Please sign-up for one of the available time slots using the Doodle link HERE; gather your family in the car, and head on over to UAC for the Kidzone Christmas Drive-Thru event (enter by 16th avenue). This will be a FUN & SPECIAL time for some safe face to face connection with your kids this Christmas season; in addition to sharing some Christmas treats and our winter curriculum!
• For this drive-thru event we are having a CHRISTMAS CAR DECORATING CONTEST! Gather your family together that morning and decorate your car as FESTIVE as you possibly can! The winning family will be contacted and the winner announced to everyone later that afternoon. There is a PRIZE: so start brainstorming your decorating ideas!
• We are also asking that each family bring along one canned good or non-perishable that we will be donating to the Markham Food Bank.
• This is also a great opportunity to bring your FAMILY OFFERING ENVELOPE with you! It will be collected at one of the drive-thru stations.
We are asking that all families stay in their vehicles as they drive-thru the UAC parking lot, and please enter only through the 16th Avenue entrance. Please be assured that all volunteers will be masked and will be practicing physical distancing. Any bags being passed to you via your car window will be done so by a volunteer wearing gloves. We graciously ask that you only attend during the time you have signed up for, in order for us to safely manage the number of cars driving through the driveway. We can’t WAIT!
Mark your calendars, because Kidzone Lunchtime Stories will be back for a special Christmas Edition! Join us December 21st-23rd @ 12:30-1:00pm on Instagram LIVE.
Have you checked out last week’s “Parenting Power Moment” from our friend Sarah Lane Buck? If you missed it, head on over to our Instagram of Facebook page and check it out! The purpose of this new series on social media is to provide encouragement to you as parents: to equip you with a practical tool or tip to help support your kids’ mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health as we enter this winter season. There are more coming, so if you don’t already follow us on Instagram or Facebook, be sure to check out our linktree to access those accounts HERE.
THREE more days until our “Cultivating Prayer” seminar with Leanne Cabrel on Monday, November 23rd from 8:00-9:15pm. Join Leanne as she ministers and shares about how to pray for your kids and how to teach your kids how to pray. You DON’T want to miss this (and not only because there will be a dinner gift card giveaway!). Please head over to Kidzone Online to register by Sunday at 1:00pm, or you can register using the link HERE.
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.
Praying a deep awareness of God’s loving presence for each of your children and for you this coming week!
In His Love,
