Print



Wards and branches should already have printed copies of most of these materials. To order additional print materials, visit store.lds.org and click on Unit Materials.

Before ordering, 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 and members use digital versions of materials rather than printed copies?

 

Primary

Primary teachers and leaders will use the following manuals in 2015:

Nursery Class (ages 18 months–2 years): Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual

Sharing time (ages 3–11 years): 2015 Outline for Sharing Time: I Know My Savior Lives

Sunbeam Class (age 3 years): Primary 1: I Am a Child of God

CTR 4, 5, 6, and 7 (ages 4–7 years): Primary 3: Choose the Right B

Valiant 8, 9, 10, and 11 (ages 8–11 years): Primary 7: New Testament

Aaronic Priesthood, Young Women, Youth Sunday School

In 2015, priesthood quorum advisers and Young Women instructors will continue to teach from Come, Follow Me: Learning Resources for Youth. These are the same lesson outlines used in 2014, with updated resources.

 

The Mutual theme for 2015 is D&C 4:2: “O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day.”

The theme may be used to enrich Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for youth sacrament
 meeting talks, and to provide focus for youth activities such as camp, youth
 conference, and devotionals. It may also be used to guide youth in Christlike service in their homes, the temple, the Church, and the community. 
Resources for introducing the theme, including videos and music, will be available in Church magazines and on LDS.org throughout 2015.

Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society

The Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society will be studying the new Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Ezra Taft Benson manual (available soon) during second and third Sundays.

Adult Sunday School

The Sunday School course of study for 2015 is the New Testament. Manuals are New Testament Gospel Doctrine Teacher’s Manual and New Testament Class Member Study Guide.

New members, investigators, and members returning to activity will study from Gospel Principles.
