September Primary Sharing Time

I am doing the sharing times in Primary in the month of September.  The theme for the month is "I will serve God with all my heart, might, mind, and strength."

Each week has a different theme to focus on.  I wanted to share a couple of handouts and ideas I am doing here.

First, the overarching theme I am doing this month is centering around the primary children doing acts of service.  I made a big poster with a pair of hands on it, and a picture of Christ, with a banner that says "We are HIS hands."  I made some little tags that I will invite the children to write or draw (while we are waiting for all the classes to come in, and then for a couple of minutes of sharing time) acts of service they performed during the week.  They can then tape the slips of paper on our big poster.  Each week, I will give them a challenge of a kind of service to do during the week that can be their inspiration if they need it.

Week 1: I am basically following the outline given in the 2013 Outline, but will show a short clip of President Uchtdorf's talk, "You are My Hands."  Then I will introduce the poster I just described above.  For the weekly challenge,  I found this great idea for secret service on http://beanburritonoonions.blogspot.com/2013/08/sharing-time-jesus-christ-taught-me-how.html.  I made a handout for it.


Feel free to download (right click, save to your computer, and then print should do it) and use for any secret service you are doing - Primary, Activity days, Young Womens, Family Home Evening!

I haven't spent a lot of time yet for the other weeks, but I will share more ideas here as I work on them!
