Want to see the Big Picture of 252 Basics? Here's an overview as well as scope and sequence of where we're heading.
The Orange Difference
Each one of our curriculums is:
1. SUPPORTED BY A NETWORK OF EXPERIENCED LEADERS
Each church is assigned an Orange Specialist to personally assist in implementing curriculum and strategy. They’ll also help you establish a network on http://www.OrangeLeaders.com with other leaders who use a similar style of ministry.
2. COMPREHENSIVE IN ITS APPROACH TO AGE GROUPS
Orange is the only curriculum to offer a strategic plan that starts in preschool and spans through college. We use the term Scope and Cycle to illustrate the recurring themes of wonder, discovery and passion that mark a child’s understanding of God. This overall strategy synchronizes the efforts of all age-group leaders and parents around common goals for the spiritual growth of kids.
3. DESIGNED TO CONNECT EVERY KID TO A CONSISTENT LEADER
The curriculum builds on the idea that spiritual growth is relationally driven. When you put another trusted adult in the life of a child or teenager, besides their parents, you provide an additional clear voice reinforcing core values. So our strategy emphasizes small groups, making it easy to connect kids to mentors and leaders who can personally invest in them.
4. UPDATED FREQUENTLY SO IT STAYS RELEVANT
Orange curriculum is known for innovation and creativity. Our writers, editors, video producers and creative directors continually seek new ways to say, show and teach timeless truths. You can download newly created resources every month (two months prior to when they will be taught).
5. EASY TO CUSTOMIZE FOR YOUR CHURCH
Our curriculum trademark: bend it, shape it, make it your own. Because it’s web-based, the material can be crafted to fit your environment, using editable text files and customizable graphics.
252 Basics is more than a curriculum that you and your staff use for teaching. It’s a ministry strategy for your entire church. Read about the Orange Strategy and how 252 Basics fits into the master plan.

Our Passion, Their Discovery Our passion is to see elementary school students enter middle school eager to discover more about God. We believe as they experience the wonder of God and are drawn into discovering how He touches every aspect of life, then a passionate faith will grow. What could be more satisfying than young students discovering that their true identity rests in a loving relationship with Jesus Christ? We agree.
