Song: “When I Am Baptized” (Children’s Songbook, 103)
Scripture: Matthew 3:13–17
Read about Jesus being baptized, in Matthew 3 or on page FJ4. Talk about how Jesus set an example for us by being baptized.
Play the matching game on page 7.
When someone gets a match, talk about that part of the baptism covenant. How does the sacrament go along with baptism? (See *CFM, pages 19–21, 27.)
The baptism covenant is a promise between two individuals: you and Heavenly Father. Here’s a recipe that needs just two ingredients! (This makes about 3 servings.)
Slice and freeze 4 large ripe bananas
Blend them until creamy
Add 2 tablespoons peanut butter
Blend until smooth
Enjoy your banana-peanut-butter ice cream!
Read “A Promise to Try” (page 4). Talk about how Heavenly Father doesn’t expect us to be perfect—just to try, then repent when we mess up. Hang up page 9 as a reminder to keep trying! (See *CFM, page 19.)
Read “The Yo-Yo Decision” (page 22) and talk about what it means to “resist temptation.” (See *CFM, page 23.)
Is someone in your family getting ready for baptism? Pages 24–25 may help! (See *CFM, pages 19–21, 27.)
