Children's Ministry

Weekly update

 

Dear Kidzone Parents,

I hope you are doing well.

Upcoming

Next Sunday, December 4th, our children will perform at the All Age Christmas Service. 

As the children will perform two items at the start of the services, we need them to be ready before 9:30 am and 11:30 am.

All Kidzone children must come to the Auditorium by 9:15 am.
(Solo singers and SKIT children are to arrive by 9 am).

Reminder

With Christmas around the corner, we have service opportunities for your family to get involved in and a fun Christmas event to join with family and friends.

You and your child can be involved in our Christmas outreach to the Elderly of Lok Man Estate, as Kidzone is partnering with our Elderly Ministry Team. Please take a look below at how you can get involved.

1. Handmade Christmas cookies

We are looking for 20 families to volunteer to make HANDMADE CHRISTMAS COOKIES. We want these to be something other than store-bought. These will be unique handmade gifts for 200 elderly at the Lok Man Estate St. Andrew’s Church is working with.

Each family will provide the following.

  • Quantity: 20 cookies
  • Wrap: Please pack each cookie individually in cellophane wrapping. 
  • Design: Preferably Christmas-themed.
  • Size: 5 to 7 cm in length and any shape.
  • Date: Please drop them off and put them in the Life Centre Basement Pantry (kitchen) on Sunday, November 27th.

2. Elderly visit on December 10th

We are looking for 20 families to visit the Elderly of the Lok Man Estate during their Christmas carnival. Two families will team up and see 2-3 elderly for around 30-45 minutes per visit. You will receive an email with more specific information closer to the time and be briefed again on the day. But we want to love and bless the elderly who love, especially to have children visit them. 

All participants must show proof of doing a RAT test on the day, AND vaccine proof or exemption must show via the Leave Home Safe app, with the recent update to the Leave home Safe app. 

  • Date: Saturday, December 10th
  • Time: 2 pm – 4:30 pm (Visit starts at 2:30 and return at 4 pm for debriefing)
  • Venue: Meet at the Centre. Block H, G/F, Lok Man Estate, 111 Ko Shan Road, To Kwa Wan.
  • What to prepare: a Christmas Carol to sing with the elderly during the visit. You can also play and sing along with a Youtube Christmas Carol.

Carols by Campfire

This is a lovely event for young and old. Bring your cousins, friends, colleagues and other family members.

Date: Friday 9 December 
Time: 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Venue: Christian Centre and Car park

All-Age Christmas Service

There will be NO Kidzone on Sunday, December 4th; therefore, you will not be sent a reservation link to sign your child up for Kidzone.

However, Creche will still be running on December 4th.

What the children will learn

  • Creche: Children will listen to the story of an angel telling Mary about The Best Gift Ever, from Luke 1:26-38.

  • 2019+2018: Will learn that Angels Appear to Mary and Joseph from Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38.

  • 2017-2012: We will be rehearsing for the Christmas service on December 4th.

Pray

Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him”. Therefore, pray that each child will accept the gift of forgiveness through Jesus and take refuge in our wonderful God.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact children@standrews.org.hk.

Warmly,
Carol
