Doing life together.

Thank you for putting into words my thoughts and feelings towards small group ministry. Pre pandemic our church started life groups a couple years before) but during the pandemic, our small groups which we now call life group (because we are doing life together) - It was during the pandemic we saw how important small groups were so vital to our gathering together online, the encouraging of one another and sharing the word with one another. The think Orange curricula/ podcasts/books etc have given tons of insights and direction into leading our Children’s ministry the way that God has called us too.

Just what I needed!

I’ve been in the small group space for several years and love the strategy and mission of Orange. Thank you for these practical resources and stories of hope! After the pandemic hit, my personal need for community rose, but it felt like my passion for ministry and confidence in my role were at an all time low. I took some time off listening and the newest episode popped up on my feed at EXACTLY the right moment. The “Purpose of a Small Group Leader” episode was just what I needed! I can’t wait for the next episode!
