Come Follow Me-For Primary
Doctrine and Covenants 20-21
The Church of Jesus Christ has been restored.
On April 6, 1830, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery gathered with others to organize the restored Church of Jesus Christ. How can you help the children you teach understand the importance of this event?
I LOVE that part about teaching children the importance of this event. To children birthday's are really important. I thought it would be fun to have a birthday party for the church. I know it's not till April, but there is Mother's Day and Easter, why not celebrate while we are learning about the organization of the church?
Here is a birthday hat:
Cupcake holders and cake picks, because it is not a party without cake.
Look how crazy this is:

Look at her fun idea to invite stuffed animals to the party, and her cute birthday cake.
Between the two of us you've got a very fun birthday party lesson.
Use the section heading for D&C 21 or ...

To help them understand the event, show the video "Organization of the church."
(Just click on the picture.)
You can review what was learned by putting the events in order and making a chain.
Tell the children why you are thankful that we have The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Explain that being a member of the Church prepares us to live with God again. Help them repeat the phrase "I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" several times or sing "The Church of Jesus Christ."

Doctrine and Covenants 20:37, 71-74
I am preparing to be baptized.
Testify that we should follow the Savior's example and be baptized in the way He has commanded.
Here is a recycled activity, I love it. I made it last year when we were studying the Book of Mormon, but I think it's great to review the Book of Mormon, while studying other scriptures.

Doctrine and Covenants 20:75-79
The sacrament helps me remember Jesus Christ.
Tell the children about a time when you made a promise and kept it. Invite them to tell similar stories of their own. Explain that when we take the sacrament, we make promises. Read D&C 20:77, emphasizing the promises we make to "always remember him" and "keep his commandments..."
Teach the Doctrine:
Display pictures of things we do in the church that are described in section 20, such as learning about God and Jesus Christ, ministering, baptizing, and partaking of the sacrament. Help the children match these pictures with scriptures that describe them, such as D&C 20:17-21, 47,70,72-75-79, and the heading for section 21. What blessings do we have because we are members of the church?
Have a great time teaching this fun lesson.
