Lesson 45: Lorenzo Snow Receives a Revelation on Tithing

Lesson

The overall purpose in teaching Primary 5 Lesson 45: Lorenzo Snow Receives a Revelation on Tithing is to encourage the desire to pay a full tithe.

Teaching Thoughts

  • Now that you can pay tithing online, you can pull up an example for your class to see on your tablet...just be sure they don't pay a whole lot of tithing for you! 
  • Use chocolate coins for Enrichment Activity 1 instead. You could even put some in Easter eggs and have the children randomly pick one to do.
  • Check out the handouts and helps included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet as well.
