“Using Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families,” Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families: New Testament 2023 (2022)
“Using Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families,” Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families: 2023
This resource is for every individual and family in the Church. It is designed to help you learn the gospel—whether on your own or with your family. If you haven’t studied the gospel regularly in the past, this resource can help you get started. If you already have a good habit of gospel study, this resource can help you have more meaningful experiences.
Use this resource in any way that is helpful to you. You may find it helpful as a guide or aid for personal and family scripture study. You could also use it for home evening. The outlines highlight important principles found in the New Testament, suggest study ideas and activities for individuals and families, and provide places to record your impressions.
Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families is not meant to replace or compete with other good things you are doing to learn the gospel. Follow the Spirit’s guidance to determine how to approach your own study of the word of God.
The outlines in this resource are organized according to a weekly reading schedule. The Come, Follow Me resources for Primary, for Sunday School, and for Aaronic Priesthood quorums and Young Women classes follow the same schedule. To support your efforts to learn and live the gospel at home, your teachers at church will give you opportunities to share your experiences, thoughts, and questions about the scripture passages that you have been studying at home.
Because Sunday School is taught only twice a month, Sunday School teachers may choose to skip or combine outlines to keep up with the weekly schedule. This may also be necessary (for both Sunday School and Primary) on weeks when regular Church meetings are not held because of stake conference or other reasons. During these weeks you are invited to continue to study the New Testament at home.
The schedule will help you read the New Testament by the end of the year. In addition, following the same schedule as others can lead to meaningful experiences at home, at church, and elsewhere. But don’t feel bound by the schedule or compelled to read every verse; the schedule is simply a guide to help you pace yourself. The important thing is that you are learning the gospel individually and as a family.
