In time for the new year, all active households will receive a printed copy of the new Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families curriculum manual. Actual distribution of the printed material is up to local leadership, but the content and information about how to use it are also available online at comefollowme.lds.org and through the Gospel Library app.
A section of the introductory materials, “Using Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families,” explains that the manual is for every individual and family in the Church: “It is designed to help you learn the gospel—whether on your own or with your family. If you haven’t studied the gospel regularly in the past, this resource can help you get started. If you already have a good habit of gospel study, this resource can help you have more meaningful experiences.”
The manual features lessons presented for weekly study with seven elements:
A weekly reading schedule to coordinate study with the entire Church, including what will be taught during Sunday meetings.
Designated scripture passages.
Space to record impressions gained during study.
Ideas for personal scripture study.
Ideas for family scripture study and family home evening.
Images correlating to the material being studied, including art that is less well known.
A prompt or invitation to act at the end of the lesson to help improve application of what is learned through teaching and personal study.
Outlines for personal study are also organized in a weekly reading schedule. Primary and Sunday School classes will follow the same schedule.
