Notice: Level 2 Lesson Plan: If You Can Believe …

If You Can Believe …” is a new Level 2 lesson plan posted in the Parents and Teachers section on the power of belief and faith that highlights the following lesson objective: “Understand that faith isn’t based on feelings; it’s a manifestation of confidence in God’s promises and His ability to answer, even when circumstances seem to contradict His promises; learn that God honors faith with answers, love, and care.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Faith-2h)
