    Ellie and her family are going to help clean their church building.

    Dad pushes a vacuum up and down the hall.

    Mom wipes the counter in the bathroom.

    How can Ellie help?

    Her brother has an idea …

    Ellie is glad that she can help take care of Heavenly Father’s house.

    I Can Help at Church

    Match each sentence with a picture. In the blank spot, draw yourself helping at church.

    I can put away a hymnbook.

    I can pick up trash I see.

    I can help hold up a picture.

    I can sit so reverently!
