Kidzone: November 19 Update
We are headed into week 3 of IN-PERSON Kidzone at the bridge! It has been such a gift to gather and minister in person to 35 of our kids each week! We would love to welcome your kids to experience safe in-person ministry as well. Our Kidzone volunteers for Sunday ministry at TOB are fully vaccinated. Remember, registration is happening on bridgeconnect.ca and opens Sundays at 7pm for the following week. Spots are limited, so make sure you sign-up as soon as possible!
We are also encouraging our kids to worship in-person through the discipline of giving to God’s work; so feel free to encourage your kids attending in-person ministry to give of their offering as an act of worship to Him! You may also continue to collect offering in your family offering envelope at home, and you can bring it to drop off to me at our Christmas event check-in on the 27th.
Speaking of that Christmas event….there are only 8 days left until “A Night in Bethlehem!” We are thrilled to partner with The Olive Branch’s “Kids Branch” to present this walk- through experience for your children (and their grown up), in TOB’s Atrium and Auditorium. It is happening Saturday, November 27th between 1:30-4:30pm. You do NOT want to miss this memorable and special experience! Please head HERE to get the whole scoop and to sign-up for your time slot TODAY! Invite some friends to join you! Registration will close early in the morning on Friday Nov. 26th. Spaces are limited and safety protocols and limited capacities are being adhered to.
As we prepare our hearts for Christmas, I want to encourage your family to be intentional in how you approach celebrating Christ this season with your kids! We have updated our Kidzone Resource page with some new Advent Devotional resources. You can check those out HERE!
Our Kidzone Konnection Groups are back again for those who registered this Sunday the 21st at 10am! Please remember to change the name on Zoom to your child’s name to help us get them in the correct break-out room quickly. Konnection groups will finish on Dec. 12th, and then we will be taking a month off while lessons continue to be posted on Kidzone Online!
We are heading into week 2 of a 4-week Saddleback kids’ series on, “Daniel.” “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who live in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself..” (1 Cor. 6:19). Paul’s words in the New Testament urged the church to examine the ways they were treating their bodies, minds, and spirits. What we take in matters! The foods we eat affect our physical health, which can affect our ability to minister and care for our community. The TV we watch and the music we listen to can affect our mood and emotions, or our witness to others. Jesus himself tells us in Matthew 6:45b, “What you say flows from what is your heart.” Daniel, even as a young man, knew that he had a responsibility to pursue good things physically and spiritually! Every day offers us a fresh start and chance to evaluate the things we are taking in. God is always faithful to help us as we choose new, healthier habits physically, emotionally and spiritually: He is the God of new beginnings!
As usual, these video lesson and family resource postings will be updated by Fridays at 4pm on Kidzone Online.
In His Love,
