Renewing Our Covenants (Partaking of the Sacrament)

We have the chance to renew our covenants every week! As a child I was worried that I would only be clean for about five seconds after I got baptized. If I sinned, then all was lost and I wasn't clean anymore! Clearly I didn't understand how the sacrament works. We can be cleansed every Sunday and be just as pure and clean as the day we stepped out of the waters of baptism. The sacrament is a powerful ordinance that allows us to make course corrections every week! We hope the lesson bundle will help your children understand the cleansing and renewing that can come from partaking of the sacrament.

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

🎶 O P E N I N G S O N G : "If the Savior Stood Beside Me"

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N

You will need a toy car, a blindfold, and a small piece of tape. Clear an open area in the room and mark a small “X” on one end of the room.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Invite one of the children to place the toy car on the ground, and roll the car to the “X” very slowly from the opposite side of the room. Show them where the “X” is before they start, then put the blindfold on when they are ready to begin. (The child should crawl slowly along the floor as they attempt to roll the car to the “X.”)

Once the child runs into an obstacle or thinks that they have arrived, remove the blindfold and allow them to see how close they are to the “X.”

Now let the same child make another attempt. This time, tell them that they can lift up the blindfold and peek every time you count to seven. Count to seven aloud, and allow them to stop and look where they are (briefly) every time you get to seven.
