That letter said the move is part of “an effort to strengthen and simplify home-centered, Church-supported gospel learning.”
Instead of separate manuals for Primary, Sunday School, Young Women classes, and Aaronic Priesthood quorum meetings, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will have one resource for these classes and for use in the home. Seminary will still have separate manuals, but the topic of study will continue to align with “Come, Follow Me.”
The new resource is now available on ChurchofJesusChrist.org under the “Libraries” and “Come, Follow Me” tabs. It is titled “Home and Church: Book of Mormon 2024.” It can also be found in the Gospel Library app under “Library” and “Come, Follow Me” with the same title. One physical manual, titled “Come, Follow Me—For Home and Church: Book of Mormon 2024,” will be provided to each family through their ward or branch. Individuals who wish to purchase their own personal copy may do so starting in December.
The new manual leads with a section explaining how the goal of learning the gospel is to help individuals become more like the Savior.
“For this reason, when we study the gospel, we’re not just looking for new information; we want to become a ‘new creature’ (2 Corinthians 5:17). This means relying on Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to help us change our hearts, our views, our actions, and our very natures.”
