New Curriculum in Resource Center
We have some new, exciting, and hopefully useful materials in the Resource Center for Christian Education of children and youth. These would be perfect for Sunday School, Sunday night activities, or Wednesday night programs. If you are interested in any of these, please contact Laura Faulkner ( .
This is a brand-new curriculum written by The Rev. Charlie Holt from the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida. This is an RCL based curriculum with levels for Pre K-K, Lower Elementary, and Upper Elementary.

The Story allows its stories and teachings of the Bible to come together in a single, compelling experience. This curriculum has a Children’s and Teen version, each with 31 lessons. The Children’s Curriculum includes a DVD, leader’s guide, activities, and skits to present the Bible as one story. The Teen version is also a DVD based study with a discussion guide.
