Kidzone: November 27 Update
Good Morning, Kidzone Families!
I hope you enjoyed the first BIG snow of the season last weekend, and spent some time making snowmen, angels and snowballs! As you know….CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Though it will look different this year, we are PUMPED about some exciting opportunities for connecting with your kids this season safely! In addition, MAKE SURE to head on over to Kidzone Online’s resource page HERE for a wide variety of ADVENT & CHRISTMAS devotionals and activities for your entire family to take part in together. The season of Advent begins this weekend, so check it out!
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 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!
Kidzone Lunch-time Stories will be back for a special Christmas Edition! Join us December 21st-23rd from 12:30-1:00pm on Instagram LIVE!
KIDZONE KONNECTION GROUPS FOR GRADE 1-5 KIDS CONTINUE THIS SUNDAY, November 29th at 10:30am! If you are still interested in signing your child up, it’s not too late! Please visit Kidzone Online for more information on these bi-weekly groups, and go ahead and fill out the quick online permission form HERE. This is a one-time form that will not only give your child permission to participate any time during this year, but will also keep you in the communication loop with the Zoom link from your child’s Kidzone Konnect leader sent 1-2 days prior to the meet time.
We have a NEW “Parenting Power Moment” this weekend from our friend Ann Mills! Head on over to our Instagram or Facebook page to check out Ann’s video: “Don’t Forget the Sunshine Vitamin!” 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. If you don’t already follow us on Instagram or Facebook, be sure to check out our linktree to access those accounts 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/.
May you know and experience our Heavenly Father’s peace, comfort and presence as you enter the new week!
In His Love,
