As the ward council seeks a solution to this problem, the following options might be helpful:
- Continue to hold the Gospel Doctrine class, even if only a few people are present. Meaningful discussions about the scriptures can still take place in a small group.
- One Sunday a month, combine the Gospel Doctrine class with another Sunday School class, such as the Gospel Principles class or a youth class.
- Invite the few people remaining in the Gospel Doctrine class to join the teacher council meeting.
- Hold two teacher council meetings each month; invite half of the participants to attend each week, while the other half attends the Gospel Doctrine class.
