You have two weeks to complete this Come Follow Me lesson. Take time to prepare your family for conference and review the talks after conference.
Hide a picture of Christ in the room. Have your children look around the room for the perfect example of service and ministering. After they have found the picture read together 3 Nephi 17. Look for ways Christ teaches the people and ministers to them.
Use the Ministering Tic-Tac-Toe to discuss ways we can follow Christ’s example and minister to others. Use the Ministering Tic-Tac-Toe throughout the week to help you focus on serving others. Have a small prize or treat for each person when they complete a tic-tac-toe.
Sing the song “When We’re Helping” as a wiggle break and to lead into the next part of the lesson.
Discuss times each person has felt happy when they served others. Use the Feeling Stick Puppets to explain that when we are happy it comes from the spirit. Point out that if we are feeling one of the feelings not from the spirit we can serve others to help us feel happy.
End the lesson using the Remembering Christ Collectable Cards to play a matching game.
For a bonus activity use the Roll & Pray Game to make a list of things we can for. Challenge each family member to make their prayers more meaningful.
Review the story of Christ ministering to the people. Focus on how Christ blessed the children. Ask your kids what they think it would have been like to have Christ bless them. Color the Christ Loves the Children Coloring Page.
Read 3 Nephi 18:1-12. Explain that after taking the sacrament we can be spiritually filled. Use the Sacrament Trays. Each time you take a piece of bread or water off the tray say one thing we can do to make the Sacrament more meaningful.
