Kidzone: November 26 Update

Nov 26, 2021Kidzone Online

Hey Kidzone Families! 

It’s hard to believe, but we are one month away from Christmas! REMINDER: our special Kidzone Christmas event, “A Night in Bethlehem” that we are partnering with The Olive Branch to put on, is this Saturday Nov. 27th!  Registration is now closed. Don’t forget to come for the time slot you registered for, have your mobile pass handy for check-in, and complete your covid screening form in advance! Also, remember to bring dolls and/or balls for our bridge missionary Kenisha & the Christian Hope Community Association in the Dominican Republic! The collection bin will be right as you enter and check-in. Can’t wait to see you!

We are headed into week 4 of IN-PERSON Kidzone at the bridge! It has been such a gift to 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 and opens Sundays at 7pm for the following week. 

We are also encouraging our kids to worship 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. 

Our Kidzone Konnection Groups are back again for those who registered this Sunday the 28th 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. 

*Please Also Note: There will be no in-person Kidzone Dec. 19th or 26th; Kidzone Online will continue to be updated over the holidays on both the 19th and 26th. We will resume Kidzone in-person on January 2nd.

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!

We are heading into week 3 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,
Pastor Shauna
