The purpose of teaching Primary 4 Lesson 12: Alma Baptizes at the Waters of Mormon is to teach the meaning of our baptismal covenants and the importance of keeping them.

Use these Alma and the Waters of Mormon cut-outs from Latter-day Chatter to help tell this scripture story or play the When I'm Baptized Game.
