    Adapting the New Sunday School Resource to the Reduced Sunday Schedule

    In the new reduced Sunday schedule, Sunday School is held only on the first and third Sundays of each month. However, Come, Follow Me—For Sunday School includes an outline for every week of the year (except for the two Sundays when general conference is held). Even on weeks when Sunday School is not held, families should continue reading the New Testament at home according to the schedule outlined. In order to keep your Sunday School class on schedule, you may choose to teach only the current week’s outline or select activities from multiple outlines (see the table below).

    As you make decisions on how to adapt the material for Sunday lessons:

    • Seek personal inspiration to help you understand and address the needs of learners.

    • Do not attempt to “cover” everything in the outlines. Give higher priority to following the guidance of the Spirit than to covering content.

    • Ensure that members have opportunities to share insights from their personal and family scripture study.

    Also remember to reserve the first few minutes of each class to allow Young Women, Relief Society, and priesthood quorum leaders to make brief announcements or reminders.

    This table can help you as you invite members to study the gospel in their homes each week, both individually and as families.
