Hi all, it’s Valerie from Occasionally Crafty! 2018 is truly the year of change, isn’t it? Our latest General Conference was no exception. Our leaders announced a change to a more home-centered, church-supported focus of learning by shortening our block of Sunday meetings. Relief Society and other “3rd hour meetings” will now alternate with Sunday School, and our time meeting together as wards will be shortened.
Members of the Relief Society presidency take turns conducting each meeting. With so much information to share, and even less time to do so, staying focused and organized is more important than ever! How can we better use our time and get to the important part of church– the gospel discussions? To help you prepare for 2019, I have created a NEW Relief Society Conducting Sheet, carefully following the guidelines in conducting announced by the First Presidency.
This conducting sheet allows for the following changes: no more scheduled hymns or opening prayer, a reminder of the Come Follow Me–For Individuals and Families study topic each week, and a discussion topic for each meeting.
Simple black and white makes this easy to print and copy for all the members of your Presidency. This is a great job for your secretary to do.
There are many people who announce birthdays, the following week’s discussion topic, and other more specific things. While you could add these in, consider Elder Cook’s advice. He suggests we use a midweek reminder through email, text, or social media to take care of some of your extra business!
I know I’m posting this early, but with a busy few months ahead, sometimes you need to strike while the iron’s hot!
How are you feeling about the big changes? What are you most excited about? If you use my printable, I’d love it if you pin it or tag me on Instagram!
Here’s to an exciting new year ahead!
