This 18 page study and teaching package helps you answer the question, “What does it mean to take upon myself the name of Jesus Christ?“. This printable package helps you LEARN about taking upon the name of Christ and then ACT upon what you learn. Our learning activities are expertly designed to help those you are teaching learn the doctrine for themselves. There are hours worth of study and teaching in this package – just pick the ones that work for you.
In this package are 3 board activities/discussions, 3 study sheets, 3 printable quotes, 2 group teaching opportunities, and 3 handouts. You will have a lot to choose from!
Included in this package are all of the following:
LESSON TITLE PRINT
This can be printed and displayed throughout the lesson to help those you are teaching reflect and ponder upon the question on the print.
AN INTRODUCTORY ACTIVITY
This two-part introductory activity helps those you are teaching reflect upon what a name is, different types of names they may hold in their lifetime, and what it means to be a Christian.
Study these great scriptures together using our study sheet and the board displays. The study sheet will help those you are teaching search for principles they can apply to their own lives!
GENERAL CONFERENCE STUDY SHEET
This study sheet will help those you are teaching study any talk you want them to dive into. It is designed in a way that they will search and record as they study!
GROUP TEACHING ACTIVITIES
This package comes with two options where you can divide those you are teaching into groups, give them a challenge, and then have them teach each other.
3 HANDOUT OPTIONS
This package comes with:
1- A card that can be handed out, folded over, and then stood in conspicuous places in rooms and homes. It reminds those you are teaching to ask themselves, “Before you act, picture the Savior standing at your side and ask yourself, ‘Would I think it, would I say it, or would I do it knowing He is there?’ For surely He is there.”
2. Printable stickers with the same message as above. These can be stuck on school notebooks, phones, wallets, mirrors, etc.
3. A door sign that says, “Today I will dare to stand alone”. This goes with the LDS.ORG video Dare to Stand Alone.
We have given you tons of teaching suggestions that you can use and adapt to plan an impactful lesson.
You can find this package HERE.
It is also available in our six-lesson July combo package HERE.
This month we have some free social media images for you! All of them match the teaching package too.
These can be used in any of the following ways:
- Post on social media to your youth to help get them more prepared, excited, and thinking about the lesson.
- Use their answers in your lesson (they will be more likely to respond to future social media questions if you do this).
- Ask them to post the question on their personal social media accounts and gather answers themselves (plus they are sharing the Gospel online!).
- Text or email the picture to your youth and tell them that you are gathering answers for your lesson and ask them to respond.
- Use as a follow-up to your lesson. Post the images that will help reinforce what they learned in class.
- Use to help involve and teach young women who were not at the lesson on Sunday.
- You can encourage the young women to comment and participate on social media by telling them that every time they comment you will enter their name into a drawing, and then you will draw out one name and they will get a treat.
- Right click on picture, save to your computer or phone.
- Email it to yourself if you need to transfer the image from your computer to your phone. Then open on your phone and save the images to your phone.
- Post on social media.
Here are some pictures you can choose from:
- You could post or text this scripture before your lesson and say something like, “Hey! For my lesson this Sunday, could you (in one sentence) describe what you think it means to ‘take upon the name of Christ’?” Then you could use their answers in your lesson.
- This comes from a handout in the teaching package. After giving them the handout you could post or text this image and ask, “How are these three questions making a difference in your life?”
- This comes from a handout in our package. This could be a great follow-up to that handout they receive.
