In obedience to the Lord’s command, Joseph Smith, Oliver Cowdery, and others organized the restored Church of Jesus Christ on April 6, 1830. Consider ways to help the children see how this event has blessed their lives.
Many of the children in your class have been baptized. Remind them of the covenant they made “to take upon them the name of Jesus Christ” (Doctrine and Covenants 20:37).
Have the children read Doctrine and Covenants 20:77, 79. What are these two scriptures? Jesus revealed the wording for the sacrament prayers and that the priests are instructed to repeat them as written in the Doctrine and Covenants.
Before the sacrament is passed, special prayers are said. The prayers tell Heavenly Father some things we promise to do. Ask the children to listen carefully while you re-read the prayer that is said over the bread, so they can discover two promises we make to Heavenly Father when we take the sacrament.
Emphasizing the phrases “that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee” and “always remember him and keep his commandments which he has given them.”
Tell the children that “witness unto thee” means we are making a promise to Heavenly Father.
What two things do we promise to do?
Everyone who takes the sacrament and always remember Him will have His spirit.
They would be blessed if they kept His commandments.
Each time we take the sacrament we are promising to remember Jesus and keep his commandments.
When we partake of the sacrament bread, what do we promise to do? (D&C 20:77.)
When we partake of the sacrament water, what do we promise to do? (D&C 20:79.)
Invite the children to make a list of reasons they are thankful for the restored Church of Jesus Christ. Encourage them to share their list with a family member or friend.
