For many of you, what I’m about to say isn’t new. In fact, it’s an Orange strategy you’ve been doing for years. The new part is that we’ve labeled the different environments for the strategy. And we hope these labels will help you cast vision with the volunteers and parents in your ministry.
The term “252 Basics” is the big umbrella—think golf or even picnic table umbrella—that covers all things elementary age. It has always centered on three main environments:
- Church – now labeled 252 Basics Groups
- Home- now labeled 252 Basics Home
- Combined Experiences – now labeled 252 Basics FX
You are going to see the terms 252 Groups, 252 Home, and 252 FX a lot in the coming months. Everywhere from the download matrix, the ReThink Store, and even this blog, will have resources labeled in these three strategic environments.
So get to know this strategy well. Learn more about the differences between these environments, and how they work together to complete your ministry strategy on the What Is Orange? website.
