Old School + Orange

Posted in children’s, personal at 11:09 PM by alexlozada

Some MCC teammates are at the cutting-edge Orange Conference (“combining the critical influences of the light of the church (yellow) and the love of the family (red) the Orange Strategy shows a generation who God is more effectively than either could alone”). MCC talked about the “Think Orange” partnership between parents & church in last year’s “Children At Play” message from the “Signs of Life” series.

My friends will come back w/ some exciting, innovative, cutting-edge programming, but my family recently experienced an example of “orange” (church=yellow + parents=red) that was “old school” – traditional but still meaningful. Children from MCC’s Mt 54 (“Mount Fifty-Four”), guided by MCC volunteers (many of them parents, plus some servant-hearted singles) presented an old-fashioned, costumed Easter drama  at Lorien Bel Air Senior Health Center a few Sundays ago. The costumes have been part of MCC Children’s Ministry for decades, and the lines spoken by the 4th-5th graders are much older than that, but hearing “Hosanna, blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord” from one special 5th grader made the story new + cutting edge + orange-y for me 🙂
