I was smart this year and purchased the binders during back to school for $1 each - woo hoo!
This is the back of the binders. This picture came from the new nursery manual. I love it! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that the age for baptism is 8 years old. We believe a child is at an age of accountability and know right from wrong. We are baptised by immersion (our whole body goes under the water) just like our Savior Jesus Christ's baptism. It symbolizes a rebirth, our sins are washed away and we are clean. Then a man holding the Priesthood authority blesses us and gives us the gift of the Holy Ghost to be with us and help us choose the right in our life. During the blessing we officially become members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is a wonderful event in our life and one never forgotten.
For the front of the binder I chose to put this year's program theme picture. It's a beautiful picture.
This is the hand out which I found from sugardoodle. You can download it into a word document from Sugardoodle. I like that the lesson theme "I can prepare for baptism" was added to the handout from the book. Plus it is always a cleaner copy when downloaded into a word document verses trying to copy it out of the manual. I prefer giving a clean copy for their binder.
I'm going to try and be better at posting weekly our binder handouts. One final note, we start with lesson 12 and 13 to teach about baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost at the beginning of the year. Then we go back and teach lesson 1.
I love Primary!
