About the teacher's resource cabinet

The teacher's resource cabinet is a growing stash of some of the best books, curriculum, study guides, and Bible commentariesfrom the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod's Concordia Publishing House.  These resources are for:  Sunday School teachers; Bible study leaders and participants; moms and dads; teens; and for all individual students of Biblical, Lutheran teaching -- from the newly initiated to confirmed theology nerds.  All resources from CPH go through a stringent doctrinal review, so you can use them to teach and learn "the faith once delivered to the saints" with confidence and clarity, on a sound Biblical foundation in keeping with our Lutheran Confessions.


The list of books in the teachers cabinet can be checked-out on the honor system.  You'll find the teacher's resource cabinet in the last Sunday School classroom on the left.  Here is what we have listed so far:
