{Sharing Time} Jesus Christ Is My Savior & Redeemer

Sharing Time Ideas from 2015 Primary Outline

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING: Place pictures of the Last Supper, Christ in Gethsemane, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection around the room. Point to the pictures and tell the children that these are events from the last week of the Savior’s life. Tell the children you are going to read a scripture that goes with one of the pictures. Ask them to silently think about which picture matches the scripture. Read Luke 22:13–14, 19–20. Have everyone stand and face the matching picture. Discuss what is happening in the picture. Repeat with the other pictures (Gethsemane: Luke 22:39–44; Crucifixion: Luke 23:33–34, 46; Resurrection: John 20:11–18). Sing a song such as “He Sent His Son” (CS, 34–35) or “To Think about Jesus” (CS, 71). Testify that Jesus died for us so that we can live with Heavenly Father again.

 Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

I found this from a previous post. I thought it would be a great way to begin your Sharing Time.

Ask the children these questions:

-What did your parents (or other family members) do for you when you were a baby that you could not do for yourself?

– What do your parents (or other family members) do for you now that you cannot do for yourself?

– Why do they do these things for you?

Explain that our parents and other family members are happy to do things for us that we cannot do for ourselves because they love us and want to help us.

Someone else loves us very much and was willing to do something for us that we could not do for ourselves. Before we came to this earth, Jesus Christ offered to be our Savior. That meant he was willing to die and be resurrected so that we could live again and return to our Father in Heaven. Jesus was the only person

with the power to do this for us. We could not do it for ourselves.



I decided to change up this week’s lesson just a little bit. It is very similar to the outline though. I hope you like it.
Activity
At the front of the room have a picture of Christ. Around the picture have my “Jesus Christ is my Savior & Redeemer” circles {pictured above}. On the back of each of the circles write each of the scriptures from the outline: {Luke 22:13-14, 19-20; Luke 22:39-44; Luke 23:33-34, 46; John 20:11-18}.
You will also need to place pictures of the Last Supper, Christ in Gethsemane, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection around the room.

Invite a child up to the front and have them choose one of the circles. Have them read the scripture reference on the back. Read the scripture aloud and then have them walk to the picture that the scripture describes. When the correct picture is chosen have the child bring it to the front. Discuss what is happening in the picture.

Repeat until all pictures have been chosen.

Testifythat Jesus died for us so that we can live with Heavenly Father again.


If you don’t fee like printing out my circles you could simply write each scripture reference on a piece of paper and place them around the picture of Christ. But if you would like to use my circles, click the link below!


I hope you enjoy this week’s idea. Sorry it was so late! I would love to hear if you use my idea and how it went, so be sure to leave me a comment.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!

{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.


ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING(matching scriptures with pictures): Write the following scripture references on the board:
Around the room, place pictures depicting the events described in the scriptures (GAB 30, 47, 56, 57, and 59). Tell the children that the sacrament is a time to remember how much Jesus Christ loves us and all that He did for us. Ask a child to read one of the scriptures. Ask another child to choose a related picture and bring it to the front of the room. Repeat with the other scriptures.

ENCOURAGE APPLICATION(playing a memory game): Place on a table items such as a picture of Christ in Gethsemane, a picture of the Last Supper, a piece of bread, a sacrament cup, sacrament trays, scriptures, and a hymnbook. Invite the children to briefly look at the items, and then cover them. Ask the children to work in groups to write down the items they remember seeing. Let the children explain how each item can help them remember Jesus Christ during the sacrament.


Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas

I love the idea given in the outline. It’s simple, but something the children will enjoy. I’m not going to share anything too fantastic today…just another option for the ‘Encourage Understanding’ and the ‘Encourage Application’ sections. Enjoy!

Sacrament Punch

In the outline the children will hear different scriptures and then pick which picture belongs to that picture. For this I thought it would be fun to bring in the good ol’ Punch-a-Box!


{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.

I have come a long way from the original Punch-A-Box I first created…the Punch-A-Boxes I now use are simple (which is wonderful!).

Using a foam board, hot glue the number of plastic cups needed.
For this idea you will need 5 cups. You could throw in a few extra cups and add some scenarios of different types of behavior during Sacrament. You could have the children do a ‘thumbs up’ for ways we should act during Sacrament or a ‘thumbs down’ for irreverent behavior.

Ex: I was teasing my sister during Sacrament (thumbs down).
I read The Friend during Sacrament (thumbs up).
Now, on pieces of paper type/write the scripture references listed above. If you decide to add some scenarios be sure to type/write those onto pieces of paper as well.

Once your cups are glued to your foam board, place each of your pieces of paper inside of a cup.

{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.

Next, get some tissue paper and cut large square pieces (just make sure they’re large enough to fit over the mouth of the cup). Get a rubber-band and place the rubber-band around the tissue paper and the mouth of the cup.

To Play!

Around the room, place pictures depicting the events described in the scriptures (GAB 30, 47, 56, 57, and 59). Tell the children that the sacrament is a time to remember how much Jesus Christ loves us and all that He did for us.

Show the children your Punch-A-Box and explain that today they are going to be playing ‘Sacrament Punch’. Tell the children that inside each of these cups are different scriptures references. Show them the pictures around the room (or you can have them posted on a chalkboard) and explain that each scripture matches one of the pictures.

The children will take turns coming to the front to ‘punch’ & retrieve a scripture. The scripture will be read aloud and then the child will have to decide which picture it belongs to.

I created some little tags that you could have the child place on the picture that they pick after they have read their scripture.

Here is what they look like:
{Sharing Time} The Sacrament is a Time to Remember Jesus Christ.


Sacrament I Spy
Here’s another option for the ‘Encourage Application’ idea. It’s very similar but with just a little change. Hope you like it.

Place several different items on a table such as:

a Picture of Christ in Gethsemane

a Picture of the Last Supper

a Piece of Bread

a Sacrament Cup

Sacrament Trays

Scriptures

a Hymnbook
Have the items covered with a towel or small blanket. Explain to the children that underneath the blanket are different items that we might see/use during the Sacrament.

Explain that you are going to invite one child up (you could even invite 2-3) to the front. You will uncover the items on the table for 15-20 seconds and let them look at the items. Then you will cover the items again and remove one item. You will then uncover the items once again for a short amount of time and see if they can guess which item is missing.

Once they have guessed which item is missing show the item to the other Primary children. Then invite the child to explain how that particular item can help them remember Jesus Christ during the Sacrament.


These are simple ideas, but they are fun and will help the children to learn the importance of the Sacrament and hopefully help them to learn that Sacrament is a time to remember Jesus Christ.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my Sharing Time Ideas. I love to hear if you use them and how they went, so leave me a comment and let me know.
Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!

Nt John 20:19-31

Downloaded from: http://seminarymoments.blogspot.com/2013/01/nt-john-2019-31.html Passed around socks that had objects inside. After feeling the objects, they guessed what the objects were. To be sure they guessed correctly, I took the objects out. It is easy to doubt without seeing. Have you ever heard the phrase Doubting Thomas?Did you know it cam from John 20: 19-31?  Thomas need to see and feel the wounds of the resurrected Christ to be sure it…

Jesus Christ lives today. He will come again.

Primary Talks

Sister Nielson was teaching the Sunbeam class. She held a picture of Jesus showing His wounds after He had been resurrected. “You mean He lived again after He was dead?” Heather asked. Jake exclaimed, “Yes, He did! We will live again too!” How did three-year-old Jake know that Jesus lived again? How did he know that he too would live again? Each week Jake listened to Sister Nielson’s lessons. She…
