Consider inviting a few children to share some of the ways they learn the gospel at home—individually or with their families. Invite one or more children to share their testimony of something they learned this week at home.
We are gathered by the Savior when we accept and follow His teachings.
After reading Doctrine and Covenants 29:1–2
, act out the analogy of Christ gathering His people “as a hen gathereth her chickens.” One child could pretend to be the hen and choose a corner of the room to stand in. When he or she “clucks,” have all the children gather around him or her. Children could take turns being the hen. Hold up a picture of the Savior and invite the children to gather to Him. Share with the children how Jesus helps us when we gather to Him.
Someday, each of us will be in the presence of Jesus Christ. While that day may be far into the future, the children can still think about what it will be like and how they can prepare for it.
Invite the children to write down a truth they learned in class. Ask for a few ideas of what they will do to share this truth with their families.
