    People Who Love You and Serve You

    There are many people at home and at church who love you and want to help you feel at home. Here are a few of them.

    Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love you more than you can imagine. Jesus suffered and died for you. Heavenly Father hears your prayers and speaks to you through the Holy Ghost. They have given us the Church and the priesthood.

    The bishop or branch president presides over the ward or branch with the help of his two counselors. These three men are your true friends and want you to be happy.

    Your family was given to you by Heavenly Father, and your parents love you very much. Always return that love.

    Aaronic Priesthood holders prepare, bless, and pass the sacrament. This sacred ordinance allows baptized members to renew their baptismal covenants. Younger children can also partake of the sacrament and remember Jesus.

    During the month your home teachers will visit your home and make sure that you are all doing well. They will also teach your family more about the gospel.

    Primary is an organization for the children of the ward or branch. The Primary president and her two counselors conduct the meetings and help you to learn and live the gospel.

    The Primary pianist and music leader play and lead the music in Primary. Gospel hymns are a special kind of prayer. Sing with all your heart, and you will feel the Spirit.

    Your Primary teacher teaches gospel lessons to your Primary class. He or she prays to Heavenly Father for help in teaching you the truth and is eager to answer your questions.
