At the beginning of the meeting, repeat together the Young Women Theme or the Aaronic Priesthood Quorum Theme. Then lead a discussion about the work of salvation and exaltation using one or more of the questions below or questions of your own (see General Handbook, 10.2, 11.2, ChurchofJesusChrist.org). Plan ways to act on what you discuss.
Live the gospel. What recent experiences have brought us closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ?
Care for those in need. Has someone recently moved into our ward or joined the Church? How can we help them feel welcome?
Invite all to receive the gospel. Are there any activities coming up that we can invite our friends to attend?
Unite families for eternity. What efforts can we make to record our personal histories?
At the end of the lesson, as appropriate, do the following:
Testify of the principles taught.
Remind quorum or class members about the plans and invitations made during the meeting.
When the Lord commanded the Saints to gather in Kirtland, Ohio, many people faithfully left their homes and traveled there. But this move wasn’t just about living in a new place—it was also about living in a new way. Quorum or class members may have studied Doctrine and Covenants 41–44 this week and learned about the Saints’ move to Kirtland and the law that the Lord revealed to them there. Among other things, the Lord expected the Saints to become unified as they loved and served one another (see Doctrine and Covenants 42:30–31, 38–39, 45; 44:6). What experiences could you share that would help your quorum or class feel the importance of Christlike service?
To help you prepare to teach about Christlike service, you could review “Service” in For the Strength of Youth (, 32–33) and President Russell M. Nelson’s message “The Second Great Commandment” (Ensign or Liahona, Nov 2019, 96–100).
To begin a discussion about Christlike service, display on the board
“Live together in love” (Doctrine and Covenants 42:45). Invite your quorum or class to read Doctrine and Covenants 42:30–31, 38–39, 45; 44:6 and list ways the Lord wanted the Saints to serve one another
What opportunities do we have, both within our homes and outside of them, to serve those who are in need physically, emotionally, or spiritually?
Choose from the ideas below to inspire your quorum or class to give Christlike service to others.
Assign each young woman to read a scripture about service from the Savior’s life (such as those suggested in this outline), and ask her to summarize the story for the class and explain what the Savior did to serve others.
What does the Savior’s example teach about what it means to give service?
Invite the young women to think of ways they can give Christlike service in their own families.
To help quorum or class members in their efforts to minister to others, consider reviewing together President Bonnie H. Cordon’s message “Becoming a Shepherd” (Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2018, 74–76). Consider inviting quorum or class members to read in pairs one of the sections of the message
and share what they learned about how to serve like the Savior. They could also share what they are learning about Christlike service as they minister to others.
Encourage quorum or class members to ponder and record what they will do to act on the impressions they received today. How does today’s lesson relate to personal goals they have made? If they would like, quorum or class members could share their ideas.
