The Orange Curriculum provides a full circle environment for children to learn about and begin a relationship with Our Heavenly Father. This strategy is very exciting because we get to work more closely with you, our parents. “Orange” stems from the philosophy of combining the “unconditional love of a family (red)” with “the light of the church (yellow)” working together and supporting each other; “2 together is greater than 1 plus 1 working alone.” When the two come together they create Orange: “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.” If we truly want our children to be followers of Jesus in every way, we must be teamed up with you, the parents, to be of one accord in how we teach and train up our children in the ways of the Lord.
Elementary (1st – 5th Grades)
The goal in the elementary years is to continue to build a foundation where kids can grow in faith, wisdom, and friendship. The program is based off of the Scripture, Luke 2:52, "And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." This new approach will help your child discover how it is possible to actively apply God-principles in their daily lives. This is established by focusing on key Biblical virtues each month. Before your children enter the 6th grade, we want them to understand three basic truths: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Parent Cue App
The Parent Cue app offers resources for those every day moments that happen away from home:
Drive Time offers weekly videos retelling Bible stories and music that you and your kid will love.
Hang Time gives weekly activities your family will enjoy and fun monthly videos.
Meal Time provides discussion starters for kids and parents to help you take conversations a bit deeper. Parent Time is full of insight, information, and encouragement just for parents.
All of the content on the Parent Cue app lines up with the 252 Basics lessons they are already going through at church, allowing you as parents to continue the conversation all week long.
You can also receive a daily push notification that reminds you to use their Parent Cue and connect with your kids. So, go to the Apple App Store or Android Market and pick up your Parent Cue App.
