Book of Mormon Stories Scripture Stories

This spiritual connection activity is a great way to learn multiple verses of the song at one time! You definitely don’t need to teach all 8 verses of this song, but this activity can be used to review a few or all the verses.

Start by reviewing the first verse of Book of Mormon Stories (flip chart here) with your primary children. This verse is likely familiar to some.

This year, we get to learn about some amazing stories in the Book of Mormon. Let’s see if you recognize some of these stories today!

Split the class into a few groups depending on how many verses you want to teach. I would recommend 3-4 small groups. Then, pass out one scripture story and the lyrics to the corresponding verse.

I’ve created a printable lesson plan with scripture verses that briefly share a small portion of each scripture story mentioned in the song. You can grab the Book of Mormon Stories flip chart and pass out each verse! If you want to introduce all 8 verses, pass out 2 scriptures to each group.

Then, have each group read through their assigned scripture. Does anyone in the group know this scripture story? Discuss the story with your group and read the song lyrics.

Then, have each group share their scripture story and “teach” their verse to the rest of the class! Sing each verse together and share your testimony of the Book of Mormon at the end of singing time.
