My Eternal Family CSMP 2009
This program is based on the CSMP outline for 2008. Feel free to adjust this to fit your primary. You can do this by combining parts, increasing the narration parts or separating the parts into even more parts. I hope you find this helpful for your primary. Let me know if you use it.
My Eternal Family CSMP 2009
The primary children sit quietly and hum The Family is of God
as the leader stands at the podium and says her part.
Primary Leader: This year in Primary we have been learning that we each have an important role in building an eternal family. The children have learned that they can strengthen the families that they have now, and they can prepare to be faithful fathers or mothers in their future families. The role of the family is an important part of Heavenly Father's plan for us. We learn and live the gospel in our families. The scriptures, prayer, prophets, covenants, temples, and the Atonement of Jesus Christ are blessings that strengthen families.
