Ideas for March Week 4 LDS Primary Sharing Time, 

2018 Sharing Time Outline Theme: I am a Child of God

March 2018 Sharing Time Topic: Jesus Christ Is Our Savior

March 2018 Song: “If the Savior Stood Beside Me” (page 28 in sharing time outline)

March Week 4 Topic: Jesus Christ is our Savior


Prayerfully study and think about what the specific needs of your primary are and how you can teach them this doctrine. The most important thing is to love those you teach and to teach them by the Spirit!! Focus on building their testimonies and helping them come unto Christ!  (All printables for this sharing time can be found and printed by clicking the "Free Printable Download" button. They are free and can be printed and used for personal and church purposes)

Sharing Time Instruction:

Explain to the primary children that you are going to hold up a picture of someone who saves us from something. When the picture is shown, invite the primary children to say what it is that person saves us from. (Firefighter- fire, Life guard- drowning, Police Officer- crime, Doctor- illness)

At the very end show the children the picture of Jesus, ask the primary children what he saves us from? Explain that Jesus is our Savior and he saves us from both spiritual death and sin, as well as physical death.

Show the primary children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "Jesus Christ is our Savior"

Explain to the primary children that during his final week of life, the Savior entered the streets of Jerusalem. Elder Uchtdorf says this about it, "It was on a Sunday about 2,000 years ago that Jesus Christ entered the city of Jerusalem during the final week of His mortal life. He rode in on a donkey, just like an early prophet said He would. A large crowd came out to greet Him and covered His path with palm leaves, flowering branches, and cloth. As He approached, they shouted, “Blessed be the King” and “Hosanna.”"

During that week Jesus would make the ultimate sacrifice for us and become our Savior.

To learn more about the hows and whys about Jesus being our Savior, we are going to do a little activity with palm leaves.

For the Activity:

Print and cut out the Palm leaf printables. Either tape them on the board, spread them on the ground, or tape a stick onto them and place them in the container.

Invite a primary child to come up and pick one of the palm leaves. If you'd like them to do it in a certain order, you could number them, or just ask the primary child to find the specific question. Read the question on the palm leaf. Invite the primary children to share their answers. Also read the coordinating quotes and discuss it with the primary children.


Why do we need a Savior?
"As descendants of Adam and Eve, all people inherit the effects of the Fall. In our fallen state, we are subject to opposition and temptation. When we give in to temptation, we are alienated from God, and if we continue in sin, we experience spiritual death, being separated from His presence. We are all subject to temporal death, which is the death of the physical body (see Alma 42:6-9; D&C 29:41-42).

The only way for us to be saved is for someone else to rescue us. We need someone who can satisfy the demands of justice—standing in our place to assume the burden of the Fall and to pay the price for our sins. Jesus Christ has always been the only one capable of making such a sacrifice." (Atonement of Jesus Christ)

What did Jesus Save us From?
"As used in the scriptures, to atone is to suffer the penalty for sins, thereby removing the effects of sin from the repentant sinner and allowing him or her to be reconciled to God. Jesus Christ was the only one capable of carrying out the Atonement for all mankind. Because of His Atonement, all people will be resurrected, and those who obey His gospel will receive the gift of eternal life with God." (Atonement of Jesus Christ)

How is He our Savior?
"Jesus's atoning sacrifice took place in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross at Calvary. In Gethsemane He submitted to the will of the Father and began to take upon Himself the sins of all people...  

The Savior continued to suffer for our sins when He allowed Himself to be crucified—“lifted up upon the cross and slain for the sins of the world” (1 Nephi 11:33).

On the cross, He allowed Himself to die. His body was then laid in a tomb until He was resurrected and became “the first fruits of them that slept” (1 Corinthians 15:20). Through His death and Resurrection, He overcame physical death for us all.

Jesus Christ redeems all people from the effects of the Fall. All people who have ever lived on the earth and who ever will live on the earth will be resurrected and brought back into the presence of God to be judged (see 2 Nephi 2:5-10; Helaman 14:15-17). Through the Savior's gift of mercy and redeeming grace, we will all receive the gift of immortality and live forever in glorified, resurrected bodies.

Although we are redeemed unconditionally from the universal effects of the Fall, we are accountable for our own sins. But we can be forgiven and cleansed from the stain of sin if we “apply the atoning blood of Christ” (Mosiah 4:2). We must exercise faith in Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized for the remission of sins, and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Atonement of Jesus Christ)

How can you remember the Savior and apply his atonement into your life?
For this part invite the primary children to share how they are going to remember the Savior and apply his atonement into their lives.

Close by sharing your testimony of the Savior.
