What is "Think Orange"?
On August 4th we hosted an event called "Think Orange" where we announced some significant changes coming to our Kids and Youth Ministries. Our hope is that every person at The Sanctuary would watch the entire video of the event, because each of us have the potential to influence the next generation.
Intro to Orange...
Today marks the beginning of your family and The Sanctuary leaning into a simple but transformational idea: two combined influences will have an exponentially greater impact.
Love of the Family (Red)
+ Light of the Church (Yellow)
We believe that kids need parents who will help them advance in their relationship with God, because no one has more potential to influence a child’s relationship with God than parents. Yet, many parents have passed discipleship off to the church, almost saying, “I’ll make sure they get good grade, the church can make sure they follow Jesus.”
I know the truth. The truth is you want to make a positive impact in the life of your child and you know that you have a greater influence in their life than anyone else, but you don’t know where to begin.
You need a partner that will help you be a spiritual leader to your family. Think of the impact if a church and family partnered together; if a church helped parents influence their kids and parents made it a priority. At this point you probably agree with the ideas, but are ready to get practical.
You are saying:
- Give me the plan.
- Show me how it works.
- Tell me what to do today.
We will be regularly providing parents with a plan and creating contexts to show how it works - you can hear most of what is coming by watching the video above.
What you can do TODAY is join our Parents at The Sanctuary Facebook Group (only parents of kids/youth that have recently attended will be added to the Group).
Coming this fall.
We are moving Small Groups to Sunday mornings for PreK-12th Grade.
- UTURN will be moving to Sundays during the 11am service
- CHAMPS will have Small Groups taking place during the 9am and 11m services.
At The Sanctuary, the next generation is one of our highest priorities. Would you consider saying “Yes” to volunteering your time with them?
We are looking for people of all ages and abilities who are willing to GIVE BACK by GIVING TO the next generation. Please stop by the entrance to see what volunteer roles are open in our Kids and Youth Ministries. We are looking forward to a congregation wide, resounding YES!
