FHE Lesson {3 Bears of Church Membership}

Opening Song: The Church of Jesus Christ #77

Opening Prayer: Child


Show a teddy bear. { Or use 3 bears, each with label}

This bear will help us remember the 3 bears of being a church member:

Bear his name - When we join the church we promise to stand as a witness of God at all times. We become Christians. We bear Jesus name. We are part of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day Saints. In Mosiah 26:18, it reads:
“Yea, blessed is this people who are willing to bear my name; for in my name shall they be called; and they are mine.“

Bear one another burdens
 We must help other people. We must offer service. We must help others that their burdens may be light. Problems are always easier when shared with others. Jesus said love thy neighbour as thy self {Matthew 22:29} Love one another {John 13:34}

Bear Testimony
We are lucky to know many truths that provide happiness in our lives.
We can bear testimony to our families and friends and others about how the gospel help us.
Bearing testimony also helps our own testimony to grow bigger.

Discuss ways as a family or individually that we could do the above.
How can we bear his name better?
How can we bear another's burdens?
How can we bear testimony more?

Make some goals to achieve the above.
Eg bear testimonies in FHE, make it a goal to bear testimony in Sacrament meeting, tell another person what church you attend, think about someone you know that needs some help, make a list of service you could provide to neighbours, grandparents, teachers.

Make a sign that says Bear his name, Bear another's burdens, bear testimony.
Leave near your teddy bear/attach to bear and leave bear somewhere you can see it all week.

Draw/print/colour a bear.
