In the Sierra Vista 4th Ward in the Sierra Vista Arizona Stake, Primary leaders put together a video for their Primary program and held a “drive-in movie” style ward party in the Church parking lot to watch the video. The bishopric rented a radio station for ward members to all tune into, and the Relief Society and Primary helped put together goody bags for the different cars, all with pre-packaged treats.

The Bel Aire Ward in the Derby Kansas Stake has a combined Primary and nursery of about 100 children. Ward Primary President Jenifer Horner and other ward Primary leaders wanted to reach out to the children to let them know they were loved and missed.

They’ve held activities for the children, like a socially distanced carnival and a drive-by ice cream social in the Church parking lot. Children who could not attend were delivered goody bags and treats from the activity.

“Our purpose was to reach out to the children, whether they could attend or not, and make sure they knew the Primary loved and missed them,” Horner said. “With each activity, we strived to add a spiritual element but mostly an opportunity to get out of the house and safely be a child and do fun activities.”

She added, “We are here to support them and share Christ’s love for each of them, even though it must happen from a distance.”
