Monthly Theme: I Can Follow Jesus Christ's Example.
Monthly Scripture: Jesus said, “Come, follow me” Luke 18:22
Week 1 Jesus Christ always obeyed Heavenly Father.
John 8:29 "...For I do always those things that please him."
Have sheets of paper with one different way, written and illustrated, that Jesus obeyed the Father. Cut each sheet into a few pieces to make a puzzle. Divide into groups and have them put together the puzzles. Have each group come up with 3 hints to give the primary so the primary can guess what their puzzle was about!
HERE is a link to pictures and things Jesus did to show obedience!! It's EXCELLENT!!!!
If there is time, have the children draw something they can do to show obedience like Jesus did. They can cut up their drawings into pieces and see if family members at home can put them together!
"Our love of the Savior is the key to Savior-like obedience. As we strive to be obedient in today’s world, we declare our love and respect for all of Heavenly Father’s children." (“If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments” April 2014 Elder Robert D. Hales)
Bring strips of paper with a secret message. That message should be things Jesus did to show obedience to Heavenly Father. Have a KEY to help decode the message. Break into groups to figure out the phrases. Have them share with the primary what they found out! Have pictures to go along with the phrases.
Again.... HERE is the above-mentioned link, it really is a helpful one for this week's lesson!!
