- Opening Prayer
- Opening Song– “Give Said the Little Stream”
- Welcome– I read aloud the letter from the First Presidency when FHE was first introduced to the church. Everyone really enjoyed listening to this. I added a few remarks about how we can still receive the same benefits from FHE today, 100 years later!
- Sister Missionaries (using “Preach My Gospel”, and how to answer questions people may ask)
- Ward Mission Leader (easy ways to share the gospel with friends and acquaintances)
- 2nd Counselor of RS Presidency (how we can teach others of Christ through service)
- Closing Prayer
- Refreshments (I had everyone bring their favorite FHE treat to share) and
- Activity (assemble FHE in a jar– cut out strips and curl them around a pencil to put into a mason jar; color singing signs and laminate them)
Here are copies of the “FHE in a jar” strips that I made (using various resources):
And here are the lovely singing signs that I made. I traced some of the signs from ones I got when I was a little girl 20 years ago! (I don’t know who to give credit to for those). The sit/stand sign I drew myself.
- Laminator sheets ($10 for a pack of 100 on Amazon; I bought this off-brand but really liked it); make sure to have a laminator at the activity
- Popsicle sticks (a few dollars at Walmart)
- Colored Paper ($11 on Amazon, I was really impressed with this paper) to print FHE in a jar– print each page a different color
- Quart sized mason jars (around $10 for 12– I bought 24 jars, which was about right)
So here is what the crafts look like:
Most ladies stayed 45 minutes after the activity ended! I think it was a very successful activity.
