We understand that the best thing Castle Pines Community Church can do for kids is to partner with their parents and inspire, resource and encourage them as they influence their kids. We only get the privilege of influencing kids 20-40 hours a YEAR, but parents have more than 3000 hours of influence a year. So, we want to help parents and put great resources in their hands. With those facts in hand Castle Pines Church employs a ministry strategy called ORANGE to fuel faith in the hearts of the next generation.
We believe that kids are not only the church of tomorrow, they’re a part of the church of today. That’s why we’re passionate about partnering with parents to influence the next generation to love God and love others. The ORANGE strategy is to align all of the influences in a child’s life from birth to college in partnership with the parents to teach intentionally with an end in mind. Our mission in this partnership is to incite wonder, provoke discovery, and fuel passion in the hearts of sons and daughters so that they see God for who He is, see themselves the way God sees them and love others the way God loves them.
If you’re like us, and most of the parents we know you probably aren’t looking for more information, you want better information. You aren’t hoping for more responsibility, you want deeper relationships you don’t need more activities, you want your activity to matter more. Our goal is not to over load your calendar but to remind you why what you do is so important. To help you focus on what matters most. To discover parenting along with you, so you know you’re not in this alone. Not all at once. Just little by little, week by week. We want to partner with you so you can make the most of the weeks you have with your kids.
The Parent CUE app provides simple CUES throughout the week that remind you to pause and make the most of everyday moments. The Parent Cue app offers resources for those every day moments that happen at home and on the go.vThe parent Time section has videos, podcasts, and articles just for parents. As well as, videos, activities, and discussion questions that link to the Castle Pines Community Church Children’s Ministry lessons. All of the content on the Parent Cue app lines up with the lessons kids are already going through at church, allowing you as parents to continue the conversation all week long. You can also receive a daily push notification that reminds you to use their Parent Cue and connect with your kids.
This is 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 you as a parent 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.”
