You'll probably hear about Orange a lot! Orange is the curriculum we use here and 252 Basics is the program specfically designed for ages 5-12 years old that is a strategy that combines the critical influences of the church and home to incite wonder, provoke discovery, and fuel passion in the hearts of the next generation!
252 Basics is organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them. And to make it easy to understand, everything is unpacked through weekly Bottom Lines—short phrases that are so easy to remember they can be reinforced at home throughout the week.
On the whole, 252 Basics invites kids into the Story of God, to show them the character of God, all while helping them internalize the 3 Basic Truths:
• I need to make the wise choice.
• I can trust God no matter what.
• I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
We also throw in some unforgettable illustrations, activities, and graphics to capture their attention and keep it relevant.
252 Basics Groups curriculum wouldn’t be complete without parent pieces to synchronize the home with what’s going on at church. We call them Parent CUES because they’re designed to “cue” parents to leverage everyday moments with their child to Connect to God’s story, to Uncover something about life, and to Experience something together. Your child will receive one every Sunday at the end of Kidz Klub along with a GodTime Card.
