2022 Curriculum to Focus on Study of the Old Testament

During 2022, children, youth and adults in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are encouraged to study at home the Bible’s Old Testament, which predicted and prophesied of the coming of the Savior, His life and Atonement. This study will be supported in Primary, Sunday School and Seminary.

The Church has published print and digital versions of new “Come, Follow Me” manuals for individuals and families, Sunday School, Primary and Aaronic Priesthood and Young Women for the 2022 curriculum. Relief Society and elders quorum meetings will continue to focus on general conference messages.

Details and the list of materials to be used for classes are provided in the document Instructions for Curriculum 2022.

For digital versions of the new manuals, see the links below or visit ComeFollowMe.churchofjesuschrist.org, which includes links to all “Come, Follow Me” manuals, regularly updated media, Teaching in the Savior’s Way and a helpful collection of Old Testament resources, such as:

The scriptures and other Church materials are available in a variety of accessible formats.

    2022 Curriculum Materials by Class

    Individuals and Families (home study)

    Families and individuals are encouraged to study the scriptures more at home using the new manual “Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families: Old Testament 2022.” This home-study manual focuses on the same Old Testament scripture passages that you will learn about in your Sunday School classes.

    Primary (every Sunday)

    All Primary classes will learn from the same “Come, Follow Me — For Primary: Old Testament 2022” lesson manual. Nursery classes will continue to use “Behold Your Little Ones: Nursery Manual.” Additional Resources for Teaching Children are helpful for both home and in-class learning. Primary singing time will focus on music that supports the scriptures that children study in their classes.

    Sunday School (1st and 3rd Sundays)

    The Sunday School manual for adults and youth is “Come, Follow Me — For Sunday School: Old Testament 2022.”

    Teachers should use the manual for individuals and families to learn about the scripture accounts and the principles to be taught, then use the Sunday School manual to prepare and organize lessons that support what class members are studying at home, combining and adapting lessons as necessary.

    Instruction and class discussion should help class members understand and apply the doctrine in the scriptures. Sunday School classes do not begin with prayer but do conclude with one.

    Elders Quorum and Relief Society (2nd and 4th Sundays)

    Elders quorum and Relief Society will focus on messages from the most recent general conference. See “Learning from General Conference in Gospel Library. Print version are available in the May and November conference issues of the Liahona.

    Young Women and Aaronic Priesthood (2nd and 4th Sundays)

    Aaronic Priesthood quorum meetings focus on the gospel topics found in “Come, Follow Me—For Aaronic Priesthood Quorums and Young Women Classes: Doctrinal Topics 2022.” Leaders and teachers are encouraged to select lesson outlines that best meet the needs of quorum members.
