Kidzone: November 6 Update
Happy Friday, Kidzone Families!
I hope and pray you all had a safe and fun time making memories together last weekend: whether it be enjoying the end of the Fall leaves, or dressing up together to do some “in-home” trick or treating! I have LOVED seeing the creative ways your families are making special lasting memories that will live on for years to come.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars & sign-up! Kidzone & Family Ministries will be hosting an online prayer seminar for parents on Monday, November 23rd from 8:00-9:15pm. Join Leanne Cabral, author of “A Parent’s Best Gift- A Practical Guide to Passing Faith on to our Kids” 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 give-away!). Please head over to Kidzone Online to register, or you can register using the link HERE. While you’re at it, check out our Resources for Kids and Families on Kidzone Online that includes some interactive activities for your kids to help them develop an active prayer life!
NEW! Starting next week, we will be posting a short videos clip called, “Parenting Power Moments” on our social media channels. The purpose of these is to provide a short encouragement to you as parents, that you are not alone at this time! It will be a few moments 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. We’ve invited various individuals from our bridge community who have skills and backgrounds in these various areas to empower and affirm you with a practical strategy you can apply to your own family life. If you don’t already follow us on Instagram and Facebook, be sure to check out our linktree to access those accounts HERE. You don’t want to miss out on this encouragement!
LOOKING FOR A WAY FOR YOUR KIDS TO ‘GO’ AS WE GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS? As you know, our bridge Christmas Cheer campaign has launched! Each year, our Kidzone kids have the opportunity to create special cards that are included in these baskets that truly warm the hearts of all the recipients. And this year is no different- they’ll just create them from home! If you would like your child to create a Christmas Cheer basket card, please sign-up HERE by Wednesday, November 11th, and you’ll be sent the instructions for creating and submitting these special greetings.
OUR KIDZONE KONNECTION GROUPS FOR GRADE 1-5 KIDS CONTINUE NEXT SUNDAY, November 15th at 10:30am! If you are still interested in signing your child up, it’s not too late! Please visit Kidzone Online HERE 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.
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/.
As always, it is my joy and honour to walk alongside you and your precious kids! I’m always available to meet with any children (in creative ways these days!) to support, encourage, pray with, or simply be a loving presence. Praying and cheering for you all!
In His Love,
