{Sharing Time} Jesus Christ Is My Savior & Redeemer

Sharing Time Ideas from 2015 Primary Outline

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING: Place pictures of the Last Supper, Christ in Gethsemane, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection around the room. Point to the pictures and tell the children that these are events from the last week of the Savior’s life. Tell the children you are going to read a scripture that goes with one of the pictures. Ask them to silently think about which picture matches the scripture. Read Luke 22:13–14, 19–20. Have everyone stand and face the matching picture. Discuss what is happening in the picture. Repeat with the other pictures (Gethsemane: Luke 22:39–44; Crucifixion: Luke 23:33–34, 46; Resurrection: John 20:11–18). Sing a song such as “He Sent His Son” (CS, 34–35) or “To Think about Jesus” (CS, 71). Testify that Jesus died for us so that we can live with Heavenly Father again.
 Sharing Time Ideas from Little LDS Ideas
I found this from a previous post. I thought it would be a great way to begin your Sharing Time.

Ask the children these questions:
-What did your parents (or other family members) do for you when you were a baby that you could not do for yourself?
– What do your parents (or other family members) do for you now that you cannot do for yourself?
– Why do they do these things for you?
Explain that our parents and other family members are happy to do things for us that we cannot do for ourselves because they love us and want to help us.
Someone else loves us very much and was willing to do something for us that we could not do for ourselves. Before we came to this earth, Jesus Christ offered to be our Savior. That meant he was willing to die and be resurrected so that we could live again and return to our Father in Heaven. Jesus was the only person
with the power to do this for us. We could not do it for ourselves.


I decided to change up this week’s lesson just a little bit. It is very similar to the outline though. I hope you like it.
Activity
At the front of the room have a picture of Christ. Around the picture have my “Jesus Christ is my Savior & Redeemer” circles {pictured above}. On the back of each of the circles write each of the scriptures from the outline: {Luke 22:13-14, 19-20; Luke 22:39-44; Luke 23:33-34, 46; John 20:11-18}.
You will also need to place pictures of the Last Supper, Christ in Gethsemane, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection around the room.
Invite a child up to the front and have them choose one of the circles. Have them read the scripture reference on the back. Read the scripture aloud and then have them walk to the picture that the scripture describes. When the correct picture is chosen have the child bring it to the front. Discuss what is happening in the picture.
Repeat until all pictures have been chosen.
Testifythat Jesus died for us so that we can live with Heavenly Father again.

If you don’t fee like printing out my circles you could simply write each scripture reference on a piece of paper and place them around the picture of Christ. But if you would like to use my circles, click the link below!


I hope you enjoy this week’s idea. Sorry it was so late! I would love to hear if you use my idea and how it went, so be sure to leave me a comment.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day & a great Sharing Time!
