They will receive one copy for each active household in the unit. Local units will not be charged for these copies. However, units will need to order and pay for print copies of manuals used in Primary, Sunday School, and Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women.

You may order unit materials beginning June 30, 2020. Please place your order no later than August 31, 2020. Materials ordered after this date may not be delivered by January 1, 2021. To order print materials, visit store.ChurchofJesusChrist.org, select Units and Callings, and then select Annual Curriculum.

Consider the following questions to help you avoid ordering more printed copies than needed:

  • How many printed copies of each item does your unit already have available?

  • How many teachers use digital versions of materials rather than printed copies?
