Using September 2014 in Groups

Though Pockets is primarily a resource for children’s personal use, the magazine can be used in groups as supplemental Sunday-school material or with weeknight groups or Pockets clubs. Here are suggestions for using the September issue, on the theme of the blessings of change, in weekly segments.


Week One:

Read: The Dog I Didn’t Want (pages 2-4)

Discuss: What’s a hard change that you’ve had to go through? What helped you get through it?

Pray: For kids dealing with chronic medical conditions

Do: Look up and discuss scriptures that can help us when we’re going through hard changes.
