The First Presidency has announced a series of resources to help Church members and their families study the scriptures at home: “Come, Follow Me — For Individuals and Families.”

The first of these resources will focus on the New Testament, which is the course of study for Sunday School and Primary classes in 2019.

“Living by and reading the word of God,” the First Presidency says, “will build faith in Heavenly Father and His plan of salvation and in the Savior Jesus Christ and His Atonement” (First Presidency letter, July 6, 2018).

In addition, new teaching resources, “Come, Follow Me — For Primary” and “Come, Follow Me — For Sunday School,” will be provided for use beginning in January 2019. These new 2019 resources take a home-centered, Church-supported approach to gospel living, learning and teaching (see Handbook 2: Administering the Church [2010], 1.4).

For years, Church leaders have been emphasizing that home is the best place to live, learn and teach the gospel, and gospel learning and teaching should be part of daily lives, not confined to Sunday classes.
