Does Married People Work Like other Orange Curriculums?
Yes and no. Yes, because the Married People resources are available as digital downloads from the Orange Store.
No, because you will have access to the entire year’s worth of content immediately. This is unlike our other curriculums which are released monthly and/or quarterly.
Your access to the Married People resource you purchase is limited to 12 months. After your subscription expires, your access does, too.
Are All of the Resources Digital?

How Can I Learn More About the Married People Strategy?
Check out the book: Married People: How Churches Can Build Marriages That Last by Ted Lowe and Doug Fields.
This book not only explains the vision and strategy behind Married People, but give you great “how-tos” for date nights, large groups, and small groups. The book also includes case studies of how other churches implement the Married People strategy.
How is the Annual Bundle a Year's Worth of Content?
When we say a year’s worth, we really mean that we give you content to plan out an annual marriage strategy.
It doesn’t mean that we are providing 52 weeks of content, and the reason for that is simple—not every couple wants to focus on their marriage 365 days a year, 52 weeks of the year. Life happens. There are other things going on that require time and attention. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t important.
The Married People strategy pack contains:
- Larger Group Experiences
- A multi-week Small Group study
- Date Nights
- A subscription to the MP Monthly email newsletter
- Training resources
- Access to an Orange Specialist
The pack gives you over 25 touch-points to encourage couples to connect and practice the four core habits in a way that follows the natural ebb and flow of daily, grown-up life. You can also customize it to work with the current structure of your church.
Does the Annual Bundle Content Change Every Year?
Yes! Every year we produce new content so you can continue your marriage strategy with fresh, new and powerful resources that connect couples and encourage them to invest in their relationship.
The new Annual Bundle is usually available in April of every year—around the same time as the Orange Conference.
How Long Do I Have Access to My Content?
When you purchase the Married People Annual Bundle, you are actually purchasing a one-year product license—giving you one full year of access to the content and right of use.
You have 12 months from your purchase date to download the content from the Orange Store. However you can use the content you’ve downloaded at any time.
Can I Connect With Other Churches Using Married People?
Of course! We encourage Married People churches to work together to create a greater sense of marriage ministry community. We believe that’s one of the things that sets us apart from just another product.
Our Facebook MarriedPeople Leader’s Group is the best way to connect with other marriage ministry leaders. This is closed group, but all you have to do is request to join.
How Do I Access The Content I Purchased?
The items in the Annual Bundle are available as online, downloadable resources. You will need to log into your Orange account to gain access.
Once you purchase you will immediately have access to the Married People content in the My Downloads section of the Orange Store.
If you are new to Orange, you should have received an email with a username and password. If you have trouble accessing your Orange account, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you Have Resources for Couples In Crisis?
What makes the Married People strategy different is that it is proactive instead of reactive. We aim to help couples keep from getting into crisis in the first place. However, every church has to deal with couples in crisis.
That’s why we recommend the 5 Days to a New Marriage small group study. Whether your marriage needs to be rescued from desperate trouble or simply could improve from good to great, change is possible.
