Lesson Activity: “Temples Are a Sign of the True Church”
This is a great lesson review with your Come Follow Me lesson about temples. Prepare a set of questions that review what you have taught about temples. Put them in a paper sack. Children will pick questions, answer them, and then choose a card from your 12 card sack. If it is a word (or part of a word) or heart, they place it on a temple window. The object is to find and unscramble the secret temple message before time is up!
Song: “The Spirit of God” (verse 1)
This wonderful song sung by members and missionaries throughout the world was first sung at the dedication of the Kirtland Temple. This song teaches all about the returning of priesthood powers lost from the earth! It’s a great song that teaches all about the restoration of Christ’s church!
Game: “A Journey With Jesus”
The object of this board game is to be the first player (or team) to reach the temple with Jesus! Questions are asked and lessons learned along the trail. Players collect “Just Like Jesus” points. Once all players reach the temple, points are counted and the game winner is declared. All who enter the temple are winners!
The priesthood keys needed to accomplish God’s work are in the Church today.
Song: “Truth From Elijah”
This is a great Primary song to help children understand the importance of the priesthood being with us today.
Game: “Pick A Priesthood”
This fun lesson presentation will help children understand the two priesthoods and the people and responsibilities of each one. It can be used as a game if you wish in order to keep children engaged and encourage participation.
*This Come Follow Me bundle includes black and white versions of the songs for optional coloring pages.
