NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Though the latest addition to
the Southern Baptist Sunday School Board’s Internet site is
currently targeted to children’s workers, it eventually will

monthly feature article from ParentLife magazine and helps
for leading a child to Christ.
2) Sunday School Worker’s Warehouse — articles and
resources for children’s division directors and other
children’s workers, information about upcoming conferences
for children’s workers and Bible Searchers Extra!,
supplemental ideas for teachers leading fifth- and sixth-
graders using the Life and Work Sunday School lessons.
3) Kids Korner, which is currently under construction,
but eventually will feature games, learning activities based

“We want to offer a practical and relevant website that
meets the needs both of children’s workers, parents and the
kids themselves,” KidTrek coordinator Kenny Adams said. “Our
hope is that it will become an interactive site that
enhances Bible learning for children and helps them mature
in their understanding of Christ and their love for him.”
