HOLIDAY FUN TIME
Dear Holiday Fun Time families and volunteers
We are sad to advise, that as a result of the escalating situation with COVID-19 that we will be cancelling Holiday Fun Time for 2020*.
However we have some exciting news!! This year we had received a record number of early registrations and had our fastest ever commitment for all 60 volunteer positions to be filled. So we know that Holiday Fun Time is well loved and supported.
We also know the amazing power of God’s love… so just because we don’t have Holiday Fun Time in person, doesn’t mean we can’t join together to share God’s love through song, stories and games by using online platforms like Facebook, St Mark’s website and Youtube, as well as traditional “snail mail”.
So the Holiday Fun Time team is currently working on a back-up plan to support families during the holiday period using alternative platforms – this will be especially helpful for families that end up with an extended time at home.
How apt that our theme for 2020 was to be based on the “Armour of God” with the bible memory verse from Ephesians 6:10-18 “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power”!
Remember the lyrics from the song we’ve learnt in previous years - “Our God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing our God cannot do!”. So even if we are in isolation or lock down, we have the gift of the bible, song and prayer. We are connected as the family of God wherever we are!
Armour up!!! And stay tuned for more updates!!
God’s blessing to you all in these unusual times –
The HFT team
