IT’S SIMPLE. “ORANGE” IS A STRATEGY THAT COMBINES THE CRITICAL INFLUENCES OF THE CHURCH AND HOME TO INCITE WONDER, PROVOKE DISCOVERY AND FUEL PASSION IN THE HEARTS OF THE NEXT GENERATION  What is Orange?

If you combine the heart of the family (red) with the light of the church (yellow), you will make a greater impact.

Heart of Family + Light of Church = Orange

This idea is built on the notion that . . . Two combined influences will make a greater impact than just two influences.

FIRST LOOK – (Birth – 5yrs)  

For a pre-schooler the world is bursting with newness. Each day is filled with one new discovery after another. Where did that bird come from? Look, the moon is shaped funny tonight! Who thought to color the butterfly like that?

First Look is a curriculum that uses engaging activities to introduce pre-school children (ages birth to five) to God. First Look gives children a first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for each one of them.

First Look curriculum INCITES WONDER in the heart of a preschooler.

The goal is to have each child understand:

  • God made me.
  • God loves me.
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

 

252 BASICS – (K – 6th grade)

Elementary-age kids are in a constant state of discovery. Think about all the different things they are trying for the first time and what they’re learning every day, even how to make (and keep) friends.

How can we tap into the way kids are naturally wired to discover‚ so they can begin to experience for themselves who God is, how He sees them and how much He loves them?

How can we show them God’s big story and help them discover the active part they can play in this life-long adventure, to be more like Him?

252 BASICS curriculum and resources PROVOKE DISCOVERY, inviting kids to live out their new understanding of how to grow in relationship with God and with others.

The goal is to have kids own three basic truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52 (light bulb moment—now you know what the 252 means):

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

XP3 students – (7th – 12th grade)
XP3 is a topical curriculum for middle school and high school students centers around the three eXPeriences students are hungry for: wonder, discovery and passion.

The goal of XP3 is simply helping teenagers to have a lasting understanding of three things:

  • I am created to pursue an authentic relationship with my creator.
  • I belong to Jesus Christ and define who I am by what He says.
  • I exist every day to demonstrate God’s love to a broken world.

XP3 curriculum FUELS PASSION in the heart of a teenager
