CPC is known for their Resource Center. They’ve got a lot of publishers, content creators and services.
Before the first General Session, they opened the Resource Center to the masses that are attending this conference, and I did a preliminary walk-thru. Here are some things I came across that I liked:
The Gospel Project
Lifeway has created a 3 year, chronological curriculum series through the Bible for children. Their emphasis throughout the curriculum is:
…showing how Christ fits into the entire gospel story, pre-creation to eternity. And where each one of us fits into it, too.
This brand-new Christ-centered curriculum follows a chronological timeline of the Bible. Using this approach, children connect biblical events to God’s ultimate plan of redemption through Christ–resulting in a transformed life. His plan then… His plan for them today.
In Main Street, we also do a home-grown 3 year, chronological cycle through the Bible (and it’s neat that many publishing companies are doing this as well!) and I’m always looking for ways to augment this curriculum trajectory and content that we use.

A little over a week ago, I shared about the re:form curriculum I just recently acquired and have used a little @ Hayward Wesleyan.
Here at CPC, I was telling the people at Spark House (the people behind the re:form magic) how much I appreciate what they did with re:form. Then one of the representatives told me about a project they are working on for children and it’s in the same vein as the re:form videos.
It’s called Holy Moly and they are currently working on, if I remember correctly, a 3 year chronological curriculum through the Bible. I got a sampler pack with the story of David and Goliath materials. I can’t wait to see what they’ve got planned!

Easy risers is a 4 in 1 seating system featuring an amphitheater, music risers, discussion centers and craft stations all in one product. The entire system sets up in seconds and stacks together easily with minimal effort in a minimal space. The Amazing advantage of this product over chairs is the aspect of an elevated sight line for each row, giving the audience an unobstructed view which greatly enhances attention span.

Pure in Heart Ministries
Another author did purity study guides on the books The Princess and the Kiss (for girls called: Life Lessons from the Princess and the Kiss) and The Squire and the Scroll (for boys called Life Lessons from the Squire and the Scroll).
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about rites of passages and tradition-kinds of things that we should introduce and possibly implement in the rhythm of our faith community. These are neat ideas to contemplate.
Pure in Heart Ministries also puts on a purity conference.
