Wondering what manuals will be used in Sunday classes in 2016?
Reminder that ward and branch leaders in the United States and Canada need to order their 2016 curriculum materials by September 30 to ensure their arrival by January 1, 2016.
The Instructions for Curriculum 2016 outlines the courses of study for 2016:
- Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society: Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Howard W. Hunter
- Adult Sunday School Gospel Doctrine: Book of Mormon Gospel Doctrine Teacher’s Manual, Book of Mormon Class Member Study Guide, and Gospel Principles.
- Aaronic Priesthood, Young Women, Youth Sunday School: Come, Follow Me: Learning Resources for Youth. The lessons will be updated online for 2016. However, the printed version will not be updated. Units that use the printed version of the curriculum should continue using the 2015 printed resources in 2016. You can download a printable PDF of the 2015 manual from the Come, Follow Me website, lds.org/youth/learn.
- Primary: Nursery Class (Ages 18 months–2 years): Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual; Sunbeam Class (Age 3 years): Primary 1: I Am a Child of God; CTR 4, 5, 6, and 7 Classes (Ages 4–7): Primary 2: Choose the Right A; Valiant 8, 9, 10, and 11 Classes (Ages 8–11): Primary 4: Book of Mormon. The 2016 Outline for Sharing Time: I Know the Scriptures are True is not available to order. Each ward and branch will automatically be sent 3 copies of it before January 2016.
Only two curriculum items are new: Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Howard W. Hunter and the 2016 Outline for Sharing Time: I Know the Scriptures Are True (will be online soon).
If printed materials are needed, they can be ordered from your local distribution center or at store.lds.org.
