The purpose of Primary 3 Lesson 9: Priesthood Blessings and Ordinances is to understand the importance of priesthood blessings and ordinances.
- Use these cute P-Reese-thood labels for a fun handout
- The Red Headed Hostess lesson packet includes a fun trivia game. You can buy this lesson packet on it's own or buy the combo pack for lessons 9-12 to save some time and money.
- For older classes, use my free priesthood office and duties matching game.
- Hide glow sticks around the room with the priesthood blessing cards found in this lesson help. As people find them, have they read the card and a little bit about the card. Glow sticks are tons of fun... just keep them out of people's mouths.
