Minister's Message - Think Orange!

Think Orange! (No, not OSU Orange.)

This summer, the Faith Development ministries of First Christian Church are working hard on something special. Something ORANGE.

Inspired by the Ministry Architects consultation last fall and our church’s long held Core Values, we are excited to bring a comprehensive curriculum plan to FCC Edmond starting this Fall.

We are hoping that this plan helps equip volunteers to make a meaningful impact, helps participants grow in their faith, helps parents feel empowered to have important conversations, and helps the congregation have an active role in the lives of the children and students that we come in contact with.

Our Children’s Ministry, Student Ministry, and Child Care Center are adopting new curriculums to be better able to bring together parents, volunteers, teachers, and kids/students.

Here is a little about Orange (

"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. By combining the critical influences of the light of the church (yellow) and the love of the family (red), the Orange strategy synchronizes efforts and shows a generation who God is, more effectively than either could alone.

Orange is a comprehensive plan. Imagine every leader and every parent in your church with exactly the same strategy in mind for reaching the end goal.

From preschool through high school, the Orange Strategy 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.

Starting with wonder, Orange helps preschoolers embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination, then adds discovery so children can understand how to grow in their relationship with God. Finally, Orange fuels passion by giving students opportunities to be the church and to make a difference influencing their generation."

We are excited to about this new strategy for Children, Student, and Child Care Ministries.

You are invited to learn more about this new vision. Come to our All Church Fall Kick-Off, August 19, from 4-7pm. We will play together, eat together, and we will share a little more about the next steps in Faith Development ministry. Blessings, Rev. Micah
