Baptism for the Dead: Nov. 29th- Dec. 5th

What a comfort to know that all that have gone on before, never having had a chance to receive the gospel and accept baptism have a chance to do so in the next life. This week's video explains this doctrine of missionary work in the spirit world and vicarious baptism.


➤ L E S S O N

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

🎶 O P E N I N G S O N G : "Baptism"

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N

You will need some oven mitts, and some string.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Put on the oven mitts, and attempt to tie a knot in the string (this should be impossible). Now ask if there is anyone who can “be your helping hands” and help you tie a knot in the string! Allow each child to make a knot in the string for you.

Once the activity is complete, discuss the following questions:

1) Was I able to tie a knot in the string by myself? (No.)

2) Why not? (The gloves prevented you from using your hands.)
