<? echo $type; ?> Parenting: We Have an App for That

Looking for a tool that will help the parents in your church engage in your children’s ministry? Suggest they download Orange’s Parent CUE App on their smartphone, available for iOS and Android.

What’s a CUE? It’s a prompt. A nudge to talk about God, faith, life or to just have fun together.

It’s a way to incorporate conversations about God and His big story into everyday moments—during mealtime, while playing a game outside, and in the car.

These CUEs will help parents do three things:

Connect to God’s story.
Uncover something about life.
Experience something together.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9 says: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 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. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

Orange’s Parent CUE App provides parents with simple cues throughout the week that remind them to pause and make the most of everyday moments. But here’s something important to remember—parents don’t have to do all of these cues.

They don’t have to do everything. How about just doing one more thing—not five more. It will make a huge difference in their lives and in the lives of their children.

Every month, this Parent CUE App will focus on one specific theme. Parents will receive prompts for videos, activities, discussion questions and more. These prompts will come in the form of “times” that are a part of everyday life. There’s even a section called ParentTime that’s filled with parent blogs, podcasts and more.

To make the most of the Parent CUE App, parents should leave push notifications on, and they will get daily prompts reminding them to connect with their child. Or, parents can set up a time when they open the app on a regular basis to take advantage of the consistently updated content.

If your church uses the First Look or 252 Basics curriculum, you’ll notice that the content in this app lines up with what the children are learning at church. It’s a great way to reinforce these great truths.

At Orange Leaders, we influence those who influence the next generation. We do that by creating resources and products that help leaders like you do ministry better.
