Seedlings, Inc 

A ministry providing Christian Education materials. It has a special concern to address the needs of very small churches. The Rev. Betty Works Fuller began publishing a Sunday School curriculum in 1977 for St. James Church, La Grange, Texas. Other churches joined her in the effort. By 1979 the material, now called Seedlings, was being used in a number of small rural churches. Initial publications were produced with the help of the Resource Center for Small Churches, and funded by grants from the Episcopal Church Foundation and the United Thank Offering. Seedlings was incorporated in 1982. It produces a four-year curriculum for elementary level Sunday Schools as well as a variety of catechetical aids for children and adults. Seedlings retains a focus on serving small congregations by designing lessons for use with open classrooms for children of all ages, developing materials not available from other publishers, and keeping costs at a minimum. However, materials from Seedlings have been used widely in churches of all sizes in the United States and overseas.
