Well, a lot of people take Friday and Saturday off, so there’s not nearly as many posts on the 4th and 5th day of Orange Week. We’ll post Kenny’s recaps for each day.
Pete Wilson’s blog, Without Wax. Pete starts off with a very strong statement, “There are few things more important to me these days than figuring out how to help our kids and students … I do know that we’ll never figure this out until the church gets more serious about partnering with parents.”
Michael Bayne talks about a giveaway he’s doing in conjunction with Orange Week with a series from XP3 curriculum that greatly impacted his students.
Jonathan writes a great post about the family side of all the changes he’s been making.
Over on the Ministry to Children blog, Sue Miller guests posts about the frustration some Kidmin workers feel about the impact they’re making (or not making) in the lives of kids. The great thing about Orange is that its not either/or, but both/and.
At Kidmin1124, Lindsey Whitney writes about how her church has been transitioning to Orange by using staff meetings to integrate their ministry efforts.
Anthony Prince writes about how a curriculum shift helped them become more Orange. Their switch to 252 Basics and My First Look help set up ministry for the rest of the week.
Dan Scott invites the Middle School “guru” to post about Yellow Student Ministry. Guru Jon shares about the Cell Family concept he’s been leading for the last ten years.
Matt McKee shares his favorite memory from a past Orange Conference. I’m just honored to have been a part of that memory.
At Kidmin360, Greg writes about language. As a church, are we speaking the same language as our parents? Are we speaking the language they need to hear?
Later– Day 5 recap coming your way!
