Each month, LDS youth around the world study a different doctrinal principle that is coordinated across Young Men, Young Women, and youth Sunday School classes.
The topic for April is the The Apostasy and the Restoration. Youth will come to understand the Great Apostasy and how Jesus Christ restored His Church and the fullness of His gospel through the Prophet Joseph Smith. They will learn about the key events of the Restoration and discover the relevance of those events in their lives.
Parents, grandparents, siblings, and leaders can help the youth learn these doctrines if they will study the doctrines themselves and regularly discuss the doctrines with the youth during the month.
Below is a list of the lessons that may be taught during the month. Quorum and class presidencies and leaders will use the Spirit to determine what is taught.
You may also want to refer to the following resources:
- Read the Gospel Topic Apostasy.
- Read the Gospel Topic Restoration of the Gospel.
- Read article “The Restoration and Early Christian Teachings.”
The youth are encouraged to Learn the doctrine, Act upon it in some way, then Share what they have learned. Can you think of ways to help the youth Learn, Act, and Share?
Reminder: If you are a teacher, you may want to refer to the step-by-step instructions on how to show media in the classroom.
