(memorizing a scripture): Help the children memorize the last part of Mosiah 2:17 by writing 

on the chalkboard, “When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.” Invite the children to repeat the phrase two or three times. Ask a child to erase one or two words, and have the children repeat the phrase again. Repeat until no words are left on the chalkboard.

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (hearing case studies): In preparation, prayerfully study President Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s April 2010 conference talk, “You Are My Hands” (see Ensign or Liahona, May 2010, 68–70, 75). Ask the children how we serve God when we serve those around us (we are doing what He would do if He were here). Share a story or a personal experience of service, and explain how it blessed both the giver and the receiver. (You can find stories about service in the Friend or Liahona.) Prepare some case studies (see TNGC, 161–62) that show how children can serve others. For example: “Annie tripped and fell on the way home from school, and her books and papers were scattered on the ground. David stopped to help her up and picked up her books.” “Mary’s neighbor was struggling to carry groceries into her house while her baby was crying. Mary helped her carry her groceries.” Ask the children to act out the case studies and tell who was served (both the recipient of the service and God).

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING AND APPLICATION (playing a matching game): Find or draw pictures of people children can serve, such as a parent, a sibling, a grandparent, a friend, and a neighbor. Make a second copy of these pictures and play a matching game with them (see TNGC, 169). When a child makes a match, invite him or her to tell one way to serve the person in the pictures. List the children’s ideas on the chalkboard. For some ideas about how to serve, see Primary 4, 166.
