New Experience

    January: The Godhead

    “We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost” (Articles of Faith 1:1).

    The outlines in this unit will help the young men understand the true nature of the members of the Godhead and the roles of each in fulfilling Heavenly Father’s plan of salvation. This knowledge will help the young men come to understand better their own divine identity and purpose as sons of God.

    To make Duty to God part of the Sunday quorum meeting, you may consider teaching the Duty to God outline below during this unit.

    Note to the teacher

    Throughout this unit, you may want to remind the young men that the names of Deity are sacred (see D&C 63:61). Encourage them to use these names with reverence and respect.


    Consider how you can plan activities that connect with what the youth are learning. A youth activities site is available to assist you. Many of the learning activities in these outlines could also serve as effective Mutual activities. Work with quorum presidencies to select and plan appropriate activities that reinforce what the young men learn on Sunday.
