Kidzone: September 11 Update
Dear Kidzone Families,
It’s hard to believe, but we are officially entering the Fall 2020 ministry season! We at the bridge are so very excited about this new ministry year and all God has in store. Is it what we expected? No. Have there been challenges? Yes. Is God continuing to work and move in our midst? YES! Though our ministry year will be online, we are praying that this will be a season of ongoing growth for your kids’ faith in Jesus. We as the church desire to equip and support you, as you spiritually lead your families.
As many of your kids have started school again this week, or will be next week; we continue to pray for God’s perfect peace that surpasses all human understanding, to guard you and your kids’ hearts and your minds (Phil. 4:7). If you ever need support, prayer, or someone to talk to: never hesitate to reach out! We love each of your kids and your families very much.
DON’T FORGET: our KIDZONE POPPING-UP Drive-thru event in the bridge parking lot is happening tomorrow: Saturday, September 12th from 9:30am-12pm! This event marks the transition of all our kids entering into their new grade levels or classes. If you haven’t already, please sign up using the Doodle link HERE for one of the time slots, gather your family in the car, and head on over to the bridge to drive-thru the event. It’s that simple! We are asking that all families stay in their vehicles as they drive-thru the bridge parking lot. Please be assured that all volunteers will be masked and practicing physical distancing. Any bags being passed to you via your car window will be done so by a volunteer wearing gloves.
Please Note: This is also a great opportunity to bring your Family Offering envelope with you! It can be dropped off in one of the marked Family Offering containers that some of our volunteers will have.
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/. Starting this weekend, we have some additional elements woven into our weekly lesson videos that you won’t want to miss; including the weekly Kidzone Worship Song of the Week led by our very own team! We are also incorporating a new prayer practice into our Sunday experiences: the 5 Finger Prayer model for the 2s-SK’s, and the ACTS Prayer model for our Grade 1-5’s. These prayer resource guides are updated on our Family Resources page on Kidzone Online, as well as in the Popping UP bags you will receive on Saturday. We look forward to having our families partner with us in utilizing this prayer practice at home.
Grade 1-5 Families: watch for some information coming your way soon on ‘Kidzone Konnection’ groups. This will be an opportunity for your kids to connect with a small group leader and one another this coming year in a bi-weekly grade-level small group. Stay tuned!
Praying for you!
In His Love,
