Stories of impact

“Kidzone Konnection has been a God-send during this pandemic. The ability for my children to interact with other peers they would see every Sunday and the dedicated leaders that spend time to ask about their week and what they’ve been doing have shown my girls that the church is not a building but people. The leaders read them stories, play games and pray for them and they look forward to every meeting.”

Pamela Chung

Kidzone parent

I just want to thank Pastor Shauna and the team for the great work that they have all been doing with Kidzone over the past year. My 4-year-old daughter Nylah looks forward to the lessons and different activities each week. Spirituality is very important to me, and at the beginning of the pandemic I was worried about my kids’ spiritual growth, but my daughter has blossomed so much from the lessons presented by the team weekly. She has recently started to ask a lot of questions about Jesus and is intent on wanting to hear from him and wanting to speak to him. She is also developing a better understanding of the importance of prayer. I truly believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and I am grateful to the Bridge Kidzone team for being a part of my village. I believe that a solid spiritual foundation will make her more resilient as she encounters challenges in life. I’m sincerely thankful to you and your team of volunteers for helping to develop her curiosity and enthusiasm for Christ.”

Prayer

Here are some prayer requests from the children’s team for the new year of ministry.

  • Please pray that our kids would continue to connect and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus and with one another during this time of online ministry and transitioning back to in-person ministry! Pray for protection over their hearts and minds, and that the transformational truths of Jesus would touch their hearts and lives in deep and meaningful ways!
  • Please pray for our volunteer teams and our leaders as they shepherd our kids toward Christ. Please pray that the Spirit would move in the hearts of NEW volunteers to serve in Kidzone and to have a passion for loving and serving our kids in this transitional season.
  • Please pray for the parents of our kids: that they would be strengthened each new day and led by the power of the Holy Spirit in discipling their kids in their faith journey at home.
