What is Orange?
Orange is simple. It’s a strategy.
Orange combines the influences of the church and the home to have a significantly greater impact on your child’s future.
At Charity, we want to partner with you to help your child discover and embrace a growing relationship with Jesus.
Elementary children are ready to dive in and learn more about how and why our faith matters. Discovering the “how” and “why” in concrete ways is imperative for them to understand to truly make faith their own. What children discover about God and Christianity at this time forms the foundation of a lasting relationship with Jesus. Did you know that most kids have fully formed their ideas about who God is and have decided whether or not they will have a relationship with Him by the time they leave 5th grade? Our passion is helping kids discover how truly undeniable our God is in a world that tries so hard to convince us otherwise. Here are just a few of the ways we work towards that discovery:
Memory Verse Challenge: This monthly challenge encourages children to put the Word of God in their hearts through friendly competition.
First Grade Bible Presentation: In the Fall, first graders receive their “big kid” Bibles.
Life Applications: Each month, we focus on a different character quality of God and learn ways to apply it to our own lives.
Vacation Bible School: VBS is held every summer at Charity and is a jam-packed experience combining faith and fun.
Summer Bible Camps: Charity provides transportation to Jr. Camp, Intermediate Camp and Jr. High Camp held at Crystal Springs Camp during the summer months.
Family Events: Charity hosts several family friendly events throughout the year including the Fall Festival at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch and our Annual Block Party.
Game Nights: Each grade has at least one game night during the winter months. We meet at Charity for snacks and lots of fun fellowship as we build relationships together.
Preteen Ministry Events (4th & 5th Grades)
First Communion Classes: Fifth graders complete an 8-week study leading up to their participation in Holy Communion on Maundy Thursday.
The Case for Christ for Kids: Fourth graders have the opportunity to ask very real questions about their faith while completing an 8-week study on the book by Lee Stroebel.
Arctic Blast: Arctic Blast is a winter retreat for 4th and 5th graders hosted by Crystal Springs Camp.
Ski Trips: 5th Graders will have the opportunity to go on a ski trip with the 6th graders.
My husband, Chad, and I live in Bismarck with our four children, Luke, Sophie, Caroline and Harrison. Our children are involved in various activities and we love spending time together, watching them do the things they love.
In my spare time, I like to garden and read. Elementary ministry is something God put on my heart as a young girl, and though I never took that desire seriously, I am blessed to be living out God’s calling for my life, serving the children and families of Charity.
Register your child online. Fill in the form, hit submit and a director will contact you shortly.
For your child’s safety you will be required to check your child or children into the Sunday School area using the iPad kiosk located at the bottom of the stairs across from the elevator.
Tag your child and bring them to the large group area. You must keep your “guardian name tag” to pick your kindergarten through third-grade child up from their classrooms.
A small group leader will be there to assist you in reclaiming your child. This person will ask for your guardian tag and release the child. If you are unable to pick up your child, it is acceptable to give your tag to another responsible adult or older sibling to retrieve your child or children. Fourth and fifth-grade children do not need a guardian tag and will be released from their classrooms by their teachers.
Please note: The doors to the children’s wing will be open 10 minutes after programming begins and remain locked until five minutes prior to programming end.
If you need to enter the children’s area while the doors are locked, please use the doorbell on the right side of the main doors. This is the only accessible door during programming. The north and south entrances remain locked at all times.
