Come Follow Me Lesson Guide: Questions and Prompts
As always lets start out with your lesson guide! This is a set of questions and prompts that will help you lead meaningful discussions with your class. The goal is to make it easy to dive into the scriptures to teach the principles above. These questions will make that easy to do!
Teaching Young Children about Eternal Marraige
Along with this coloring page of the Prove Center City Temple and the cute couple out front I have a few ideas to help you teach the idea of Eternal Marriage to your class. The following is suggested in Come Follow Me suffer the children to come to me:
- Invite each of the children to read a scripture from this list: Mark 10:6–8; 1 Corinthians 11:11; D&C 42:22; 131:1–4; and Moses 3:18, 21–24. What do these scriptures teach about marriage?
To help you do this I have taken this list and created some fun temple
The Family a
Proclimation to the World
Another suggestion as you teach about eternal marriages in CFM is to use the Family a proclamation to the world. I have created a custom version you can send home as your handout this week. You can certainly use it as a teaching tool in class as well.
Suffer the Children to Come to Me
Once you have shared the above ideas about temple marriage with your class it is time to discuss Jesus teaching and blessing the children.
We will read about this in: Mark 10: 13-16
I often have several willing participants who know and want to share the stories so ask your class if they want to help teach the story. Then use the above questions to help them diver deeper into its meaning.
How can we Gain Eternal life?
This is the last principle we are asked to share in class this week. This is understood better in the following scriptures: Matthew 10: 17-22
This part of the lesson is going to be awesome for discussion. Instead of adding in fluff here simple use your scriptures and discuss what is taught by Jesus. Consider sharing the story of the rich man by using THIS video idea suggested in CFM.
