January Lesson Plan

Happy New Year!

A Month of Fasting

Fasting is a willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink or both, for a period of time.


This month we will explore biblical fasting and praying through games, videos, manipulatives and technology.


All material will be supplied for each class level.
