A look into new curriculum for Sunday School classes

Flexibility, teaching doctrine and focusing on the Spirit are the guiding principles of a new curriculum for temple and family history courses taught during Sunday School, according to one of the presenters at the Conference on Family History and Genealogy at BYU, July 28-31.

Todd Jones, publications manager for the FamilySearch, gave a presentation on "New Resources for Teaching Family History Courses and said the new curriculum is expected to be introduced in the latter half of August. Complimentary copies of the instructor's guide, student guide and DVD will be mailed to bishops and stake presidents at that time, with additional copies available for order.

He noted that the new curriculum can be used in various other ways in addition to Sunday School, including self-study, coaching of Church members one-on-one, lessons in priesthood meeting or Relief Society on the first Sunday of the month, bishopric lessons for combined priesthood and Relief Society meetings on the fifth Sunday of the month, lessons for youth at Mutual, and other opportunities such as family home evenings and firesides.
