The Mission of Jesus Christ

This post may contain affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Thank you for supporting this site. See the full disclosure.


The purpose of teaching Primary 7 Lesson 35: The Mission of Jesus Christ is to understand Christ's mission. 

Because this is a broader subject these lesson helps cover the Creation, Second Coming, Resurrection, Atonement, and Plan of Salvation. 

This Names of Christ Flipbook from the Redheaded Hostess goes wonderfully with Enrichment Activity 1. It would be neat to go through one name a week or do some now then again around Christmas.

The following are links to resources unless otherwise stated.
