Are you nervous about holding a First Sunday Council Meeting? Have you been holding them and they aren’t going as you hoped? We are here to help.
A new change to the 2018 Come, Follow Me Curriculum for Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society classes is the addition of a First Sunday Council Meeting. This is a departure from the old way of having a lesson selected at the Presidency’s discretion. If you aren’t careful, you might fall right back into that old way.
I invited Kurt Francom of Leading LDS to join us because he recently shared 6 Tips for First Sunday Council Meetings. We expound of each of his points and how you can incorporate them to lead an effective First Sunday Council Meeting. Kurt mentions a helpful resource called 7 Unbreakable Rules of Church Meetings.
For reference the 6 tips are:
No lessons, videos, quotes, talks, or books
Set Rules & Expectations
You need a clear vision statement
Obsess over the room setup
Send topics ahead of time
