High Five and Dive into the New Testament with MTC for Kids! We are excited to have you join us each week as we share a simple and easy way to participate in the Come Follow Me lessons at home or in primary. Go to “How to Set Up Come Follow Me” to find out how it works and to get your digital New Testament Kit.

Let’s “DIVE” in!

Let’s begin by following our High Five method as you work through this week’s lesson focused on the scripture from the reading block, John 8:12 “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

1. Pray

Don’t forget to start with a prayer! We need the Holy Ghost to help inspire and teach us. Check out our blog post and video about prayer to help your children understand how and why we pray.

2. Primary Song

Sing together as a family this week’s primary song: “Teach Me to Walk in the Light.” Nothing brings the spirit into a home or primary class quite like music does. Just play and sing-along. If you would like additional help learning the song, you can download our chalkboard visuals below.

3. Video Lesson

Gather the entire family and watch the video lesson we have created for you focused on John 8:12 “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
