“Come, Follow Me Activities,” Friend, Nov. 2023, 10–11.
For Hebrews 1–6
Story: Jesus Christ is “the captain of [our] salvation” (Hebrews 2:10). A captain guides a ship on the sea. Jesus can also guide us to heaven so we can live with Him someday!
Song: “I Need Thee Every Hour” (Hymns, no. 98)
Activity: Draw a picture of a boat on the waves. Then write or talk about ways you can follow Jesus Christ. How does He guide you in your life?
For Hebrews 7–13
Story: The scriptures say that faith means believing in things you cannot see (see Hebrews 11:1). Hebrews 11 tells stories of many people who had faith. Having faith in Jesus Christ gives us peace and courage.
Song: “Faith” (Children’s Songbook, 96–97)
Activity: Take turns choosing a scripture hero from Hebrews 11. Everyone else asks questions to guess the hero. How can you have faith like the people in the scriptures?

Song: “When We’re Helping” (Children’s Songbook, 198)
Activity: Have a race! Set a start and finish line. Then move to the finish line by sliding your feet forward without lifting them. The winner of the race chooses a simple act of service for the group to do, like sending a kind message to someone or visiting someone who is lonely.
For 1 and 2 Peter
Story: Our ancestors can learn about the gospel after they die (see 1 Peter 4:6). In the temple, we can be baptized for them and help them follow Jesus Christ!
Song: “Family History—I Am Doing It” (Children’s Songbook, 94)
Activity: Use blocks or sugar cubes to build a temple. How can you prepare to enter the temple?
For 1–3 John; Jude
Story: Heavenly Father loves all of us! The Apostle John taught us to love others too (see 1 John 4:19, 21). How can you show love to others?
Song: “Where Love Is” (Children’s Songbook, 138–39)
Activity: Turn to page 12 to do a heart craft. Then give the hearts to people you love!
