“Hold to the Rod Seminary Series Also in Adult Curriculum,” Ensign, Apr. 1988, 79
Hold to the Rod (stock number VNVV3632), a videocassette series of lessons used in seminary classes, is being incorporated into the Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society curriculum for 1988.
The series was developed by the Church Educational System to motivate and train seminary youth to study the scriptures. The series includes twelve presentations, each with its own printed discussion materials, on four videocassettes.
The first videocassette, which is to be used by the Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society this year, contains three presentations: “Hold to the Rod,” “Experiment upon the Word,” and “Search the Scriptures: RSVP.” Each presentation is intended to help adult members gain a better understanding of the scriptures.
The Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society should schedule these lessons near the time seminary students study the series. This is generally within the first six weeks of the 1988–89 school year. The Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society should plan their presentations to avoid conflicts in scheduling or library equipment requests.
Since this videocassette is also used by the seminaries, it is suggested that wards and branches use it only in Melchizedek Priesthood quorum classes and in Relief Society meetings, and not in youth classes.
One copy of the videocassette and its accompanying teaching guide should be available in each meetinghouse library.
