2016 Sharing Time Outline Theme: "I Know the Scriptures Are True"

December 2016 Scripture: “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works” (Matthew 16:27).

December 2016 Song:  Your Choice

December Week 4 Topic: To prepare for the Second Coming, I will follow Jesus Christ.


Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine.


Sharing Time Instruction:

With there being only three Sunday's in December this lesson could be combined with the lesson for week 3. The idea in the Sharing Time outline is great! Here is another option.

Begin the Sharing time by showing the primary children the short video clip, "Follow Him". Then ask the primary children who it is the video says we should follow? Why should we follow the Savior?

Show the primary children the Week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "To prepare for the Second Coming, I will follow Jesus Christ."

Explain that we know that the Savior will come again someday, we have been given signs of his coming and the Savior has given us a way to prepare for his coming. That is by following him, following the example that he gave us while he lived on this earth.

Show the primary children the footprints. Give each of the primary children a footprint and invite them to write one thing that they can do to follow Jesus and prepare for His coming. (Have the presidency available to help the younger class write down their ideas) You could give them an example, such as "serve my neighbor and friend". (If your primary children have been doing the #LIGHTtheWORLD calendar, this would be a great time to talk about how each of the topic on there are following the Savior)

Place a picture of the Savior near the top of the board. Draw a pathway with chalk leading to him.  Invite some of the primary children to come up and tell what they wrote on their footprint. Place the footprint on the board, leading to the Savior.

Share your testimony that as we follow the Savior we will be prepared when he comes again. Invite the primary children to discuss with their families the things they can do to follow the Savior and prepare for his coming.
