Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”” – Matthew 19:13-14
At Orange we value children as an integral part of our family. We feel that is our responsibility to do our best to nurture and grow the children up in the Christian faith. As teachers and leaders, our role is to provide a foundation of experiences on which children move toward a maturing faith and a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ, through which we become more like Christ living in our everyday lives in the world.
We offer many opportunities for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ:
