Kidzone: September 25
Happy First Week of Fall, Kidzone Families!
At this point, most all of your children have started their school adventure this year; whether it be in-person or virtually. It may have gone great! It may have been incredibly difficult. It may have been a mix of both, depending on the day. Know that the grace of our good and faithful God abounds in this season. Know that you are not alone and it’s our desire to come alongside you in prayer, support and tools to equip you. There is a new Parent Cue article on our resource page to encourage parents of virtual learners- check it out! We are cheering for you!
This is one last call for those who were unable to make our Popping Up event but would like to have a special bag for your child dropped off to you, or a pick-up arranged. This bag includes our Fall curriculum resources, fun treats, and more! Please contact me at [email protected]. I’d love to arrange this for you!
Thank you to those of you who had your kids submit a welcome picture or note for Mario who arrives in a few days from Lebanon! We can’t wait to present him his welcome card along with a “Welcome to Canada!” care package on behalf of Kidzone at the bridge.
Grade 1-5 Families: EXCITING NEWS! Starting on Sunday, October 4th from 10:30-11:00am, we will be kicking off our bi-weekly “Kidzone Konnection” groups. The purpose of Kidzone Konnection groups is to provide a safe & loving online space for our kids to connect with each other in relationship: to be encouraged in their faith, build loving community, and to have FUN! There will be a group for each grade level (1-5), facilitated by a committed Kidzone leader who will be in contact with you a few days prior to October 4th, after you have signed your children up by completing the online permission form. This 30-minute Zoom call every other week is a fantastic opportunity for your kids to connect with one another. 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 Kidzone Konnect leader. Sign up by Friday, October 2nd!
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/. We have incorporated new prayer practices 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, and they were also inside the Popping UP bags you received. CHECK OUT THE NEW “ACTS PRAYER PRINTABLE” for Grade 1-5 kids on our resource page HERE! This is a GREAT tool for kids who prefer to write out their prayers, and a wonderful way to look back to see how God answered prayers each week. We desire to partner with you in discipling your kids toward deep relationships with God through prayer.
In His Love,
