Presentation Transcript
BaptistWay Press® is the publishing arm of the Baptist General Convention of Texas. Launched in the spring of 2000, the Adult Bible study curriculum was the first age-group material published. A full year of free online Preschool and Children’s curriculum was added in September, 2003. Youth curriculum also went online in the fall of 2003, with a sampling of lessons. A full year of youth curriculum is scheduled to be completed during 2004-2005. These recent additions provide a fully age-graded curriculum for the local church. The adult materials are the only purchase items, with the preschool, children and youth curriculum available FREE on the BaptistWay website – www.baptistwaypress.org.
