This school year, seminary students will notice one more change to their religious education. Church leaders have taken a second look at Seminary scripture mastery passages, modifying the required lists to help prepare youth for future missionary and church service.
Leaders of the LDS Church have shown an undeniable interest in the youth of the Church lately. In early 2013, the new youth Sunday curriculum Come, Follow Me: Learning Resources for Youth was released. Then age requirements for missionary service were changed in October 2012, allowing many more young adults to serve as full-time missionaries.
