Curriculum Lab (CurLab)

Christian Education

The Christian education materials are arranged by ministries of the church, and are located on shelves on the west side of the lab and in filing cabinets. Materials for a particular category are arranged topically by call number or alphabetically by publisher. Some samples of historical materials are kept in the alcove to the left of the Christian education shelves.

Larger materials, which do not fit in the regular file drawers or on the shelves, are placed in the oversize file cabinet located next to the Accu-Cut® cutting system.  One of the oversize drawers contains materials for teaching about missions.

Current Sunday School materials are placed on the display shelves at the entrance to the lab.  After materials are displayed for a period of time, they are placed in the appropriate file drawers.
