Primary

The theme for Primary sharing time in 2016 is “I Know the Scriptures Are True.” Leaders can find the 2016 Outline for Sharing Time and other helpful resources online. The Primary general presidency says the theme can help children love the scriptures. Learn more what they said.

Primary teachers and leaders will use the following manuals in 2016:

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

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

CTR 4, 5, 6, and 7 (ages 4–7 years): Primary 2: Choose the Right A

Valiant 8, 9, 10, and 11 (ages 8–11 years): Primary 4: Book of Mormon

Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women

In 2016, Aaronic priesthood quorum advisers and Young Women instructors will teach from Come, Follow Me: Learning Resources for Youth.

The Mutual theme for 2016 is:

“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life” (2 Nephi 31:20; emphasis added).

The theme may be used to enrich Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for sacrament
 meeting talks by youth, or to provide focus for youth activities, including camps, youth
 conferences, and devotionals. Leaders are encouraged to emphasize any of the principles taught in this verse to help meet the needs of the youth they serve.


Resources for introducing the theme, including videos and music, are now online on youth.lds.org. Additional materials supporting the theme will be made available in Church magazines and on LDS.org throughout 2016. (Learn more what general leaders said about the theme.)
