What is Think Orange?
Orange is what you get when you combine two primary colors red and yellow. If you paint only with red, you will get what only red can do. If you paint only with yellow, you will get what only yellow can do. But when you paint with red and yellow, you’ll get new possibilities, fresh solutions, vibrant outcomes.
The color orange symbolizes what it means to parent beyond your capacity. Orange parents understand that by tapping into a wider community, they have the potential to make a greater impact in the lives of their children.
Orange is a strategy for combining critical influences in life to fuel faith in the next generation.
Orange is a path, a strategy that combines the strength of two, yellow and red, to create the brilliance of another, Orange. Yellow representing the light of the church. Red representing the love of the family. By combining the critical influences of the light of the church and the love of the family, the Orange strategy synchronizes efforts and shows a generation who God is more effectively than either could alone
From preschool to college, it draws on the elements of wonder, discovery and passion, infusing them into children, students and young adults. Why? To see God for who He is, to help young people see themselves the way God sees them, so that they can love others the way God does.
Orange is a community when you are orange you are not alone.
How is Xenia Grace Chapel “thinking orange”?
Partnering with Families is a “value” of Xenia Grace Chapel. We want our families to live out Joshua 24:15 and Deut. 6:6-7.
Joshua 24:15 says “…as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Deut. 6:6-7 (NIV) says “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Our guiding principles as we focus on the next generation are:
1. Nothing is more important than someone’s relationship with God.
2. No one has more potential to influence a child’s relationship with God than a parent.
3. No one has more potential to influence the parent than the church.
4. The church’s potential to influence a child dramatically increases when it partners with a parent.
5. The parent’s potential to influence a child dramatically increases when that parent partners with the church.
Each month you will be given parent cues that you are encouraged to use in family devotions with your preschoolers and children. Throughout the year opportunities to fellowship and be together as family and church family are provided. And of course your Children’s Pastor, Youth Pastor and Senior Pastor are always here to provide any support you might need or will point you in the right direction.
