In the Training area, we will use links to free online training for workers or links to ministries that will come do training at our church.

We will use the Podcast area to find free audio or video podcast from Children’s Pastors’ or Youth Pastors to use as a segment in our lessons.

We will go to the Lessons/Lesson Segments area to find websites full of free puppet scripts, object lessons, lesson outlines, and more.

We will go to the Lessons/Full Curriculum link to find free whole curriculum online.
