Ordinances ST

Sharing Time- Ordinances

We are going to learn about the ordinances that were restored by Joseph Smith that we must participate in to make it back to our Heavenly Father.

We are going to take a stroll through life. Pay attention because you will need to know the information about the ordinances to play our game later. I am going to need some helpers. Be reverent, stay in your seats and raise your hand and wait to be called on.

*SACRAMENT CHRIST PICTURE Amber—As ___________ prepares for baptism, she partakes of the sacrament every Sunday to remind her of the covenants she will make at baptism. (Have child pantomime act) She takes the bread to remind her of Christ’s body and she takes the water to remind her of Christ’s blood that was shed for us. She always takes the sacrament with her right hand. She only takes one piece of bread. She always puts the water cups back in the tray after finishing and doesn’t play with them during the sacrament. She always thinks of Jesus during the entire sacrament. Taking the sacrament is an ordinance restored to the earth.

*BAPTISM PICTURE Melissa—____________ is also preparing for baptism, another ordinance. When she is eight, if worthy, she can be baptized. She wants to follow Christ’s example, receive the Holy Ghost, and become a member of the true church of Jesus Christ. When Melissa is baptized she must be completely covered with water. (Immersion as in the fourth article of faith) We must be in white and a Melchizedek Priesthood holder must baptize you.

*CONFIRMATION PICTURE Lauren-- _____________ has just been baptized. After being baptized, hands were laid upon her head by  Melchizedek Priesthood holders and two blessings were given. One was the blessing of the Holy Ghost in her life. She will have the Holy Ghost to help her make right choices as long as she is worthy. The other blessing is being confirmed a member of the true restored church.

*YOUNG MAN PASSING SACRAMENT  Alfonso-- _____________ has just turned 12. As a young man, he will receive the Aaronic Priesthood by the laying on of hands by Priesthood holders. He will be ordained a Deacon and given the responsibility of passing the sacrament. Keep in mind girls do not receive that Priesthood and do not pass the sacrament.

*MISSIONARY PICTURE Jorge-- ____________ has just turned 19 and is ready to serve a mission. He has turned his papers in and is worthy to serve! Before he goes, he will receive the power of the Melchizedek Priesthood by the laying on of hands and be ordained an elder. Then he will go to temple and receive his endowment and be off to teach the gospel.

*MARRIAGE TEMPLE PICTURE John Thomas. -- ___________ has just returned from his mission and met a girl he likes. He is ready to enter into another ordinance, temple marriage. He and a lady will be sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. The lady, before she gets married will also receive her endowment too.

**Now we are going to play our “ordinance opportunity” game! One team. One member of Primary will draw a # to move on the game board and when you land on a particular ordinance, you will be asked a ? about that ordinance.
