Kidzone: October 9 Update
Dear Kidzone Families,
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend! I have been meditating on Psalm 7:17 the last couple of days, and I’d love to share it with you: “I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High.” We give thanks because we serve an amazing GOD who is holy, just and perfect: He is righteous! He is the same yesterday, today and forever- unchanging! There is so much comfort we can find in that promise. I know for many of us, this weekend may not look like it has in past years, and our circumstances sometimes feel like they change on us each moment, hour and day. May we all give thanks and sing praises this weekend to our awesome God- His faithfulness, undeserved grace and unconditional love are UNCHANGING! This is a gift so incredibly worthy of all our gratitude. Make sure to check out our Resource page HERE for lots of Thanksgiving ideas for your kids and family to utilize together this weekend!
We have another opportunity to live out the GO part of our bridge mission in the next few weeks! One of our mission partners, Kenisha, who serves in Barahona, Dominican Republic with Christian Hope Community Association (CHCA) is doing a “Dolls & Balls!” collection for the kids this Christmas. CHCA advocates for the children in this community to receive an education. Would you consider purchasing a new ball and/or a multicultural doll to donate to this worthy cause? This is a great project to have your kids participate in! We will be offering 2 Drive-Thru drop-off options at the bridge: Wednesday October 21st from 6-8pm OR Sunday October 25th from 4-6pm. Please note: all safety protocols will be followed (masks, gloves, social distancing) for receiving the dolls & balls. Thank you in advance for your giving hearts to show God’s love to these precious kids!
OUR KIDZONE KONNECTION GROUPS FOR GRADE 1-5 ARE OFF TO A GREAT START! We had many of your kids join us on Sunday and there was so much joy shared in being able to re-connect and begin relationship building with one another online. If you are still interested in signing your child up, it’s not too late! Please visit Kidzone Online HERE for more information, 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 leader sent a couple of days prior. Our next time together is October 18th at 10:30am!
Please note: if any family has need for an additional device in order for your children to participate on their call, please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Shauna.
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/.
At the bridge, we love to hear stories and testimonies of how God is at work in your lives! If you have a story of how God is at work in your child’s life from this past year, would you share it with me? I have LOVED hearing from some of you this year and being able to pray intentionally for your kids- it is such a gift!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all,
