September 2018 Song: Your Choice of Song from the Children's Songbook

September Week 3 Topic: When I serve others, I serve God.


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.

Sharing Time Instruction:

Follow up with the primary children with what they learned last week and how they applied it into their lives throughout the week.

Underneath the chairs place the following word strips, "When ye are in", "the service of", "your fellow beings", "ye are only in", "the service of", "your God." "Mosiah 2:17" (see free download below)

Invite the primary children to look under their chairs, invite the primary children with the word strips to come up to the front of the room. Invite them to try to put the scripture in order. When it is in order, read it with the rest of the primary. If you would like for them to try to memorize it, you could take a word strip away, repeat it, then take another word strip away. Continue util they can say it without the word strips.

Ask the primary children what they think this scripture means?  It means that when we serve others then we are also serving our Heavenly Father.

Show the primary children the week's theme poster and invite them to repeat, "When I serve others, I serve God." Explain that today in Sharing time they are going to discuss some ways they can serve others.

For the activity print the service dice out onto card stock and glue it together to make a cube. Here is a link to the directions: Service Dice

Explain to the primary children that Heavenly Father loves all of His children and He gives us opportunities to serve them. On the dice are pictures of people that are around us that we could easily serve.

Invite a primary child up to toss the dice. Explain that what ever picture lands up, they will share a way that they could serve that person.

Continue with this activity as long as time allows.

Share you testimony on service and invite the primary children to serve those around them throughout the week. That next sharing time they are going to be sharing some of the things they did throughout the week to serve others.
