Family Home Evening for Come Follow Me 9/28

Song

Follow the Prophet (Children’s #110, last verse)

Scripture

Amos 3:7 and D&C 1:38

Lesson

  • This weekend is going to be General Conference!  (For ideas to prepare your family, check out this section of the Church’s website)
  • Why is General Conference important?  Read Amos 3:7 and D&C 1:38
  • Before FHE, look through these ideas of what you can do during General conference.  Select a few of them and talk about them with your children.  Any that you decide to do, go ahead and create them during FHE as a family (if your children will let you!)

Activity

Instead of journal prompts this week, we will be printing out activities that will help us learn during General Conference.  Have each family member decorate a piece of colored construction paper that will be each child’s “General Conference Notebook.”  On Friday, after you have collected all of the different activities, games, etc. that you plan on using throughout the week, staple them together with the construction paper on the top.

Treat

Eat some of the yummy treats and snacks you got to enjoy during Conference.

Friday Devotional

Stand for the Right (Children’s #159)

Scripture

Discussion

  • King Benjamin had something very important to say to the people from Heavenly Father.  He stood at the temple and built a tall tower.
  • In those times, there were no TVs or computers.  If they wanted to hear him speak, they had to go in person, sometimes travelling for days.
  • How did everyone set up their tents?  (in families with their doors towards the temple.)  How can we apply this to General Conference?

Activity

Clean the room where you’ll be watching General Conference and get the ingredients ready to make cinnamon rolls.

Get tents ready to put in the living room and face them towards the TV to watch General Conference in, just like King Benjamin’s people did to pitch their tents.
