New Primary Calling

I have a bunch of things I want to share on the blog. Pictures of activities and recipes and crafts that we've done and stories of experiences from 2014, but I just felt like I needed to take today for a quick catch-up post, and to say that I've been busy!  But great things are coming :)

One big thing that happened in December was that I received a new calling at church. If you're a member of my church or if you're familiar with it, you'll know exactly what that means, but I'll try to explain this in a way that will make sense even if you're not familiar with our church.

What's a Calling?

We don't have a paid clergy. We all have different callings (or jobs) that we serve in at different times. We attend church for 3 hours on Sundays. During the first hour, we sit together in families. During the 2nd hour, we split up into different age groups for Sunday School classes. During the 3rd, the men meet together and the women meet together.

What's Primary?

The children and teenagers also have meetings with their own age groups during the 2nd and 3rd hours. The children's organization is called Primary. I had been serving as a Primary teacher (Ken & I were teaching the 5 & 6 year olds) on Sundays.

The whole primary meets together for one of the hours and teachers teach individual age-group classes for the other.  My new calling is to be the Primary President, so I will be in charge of our local Primary.

This is a big time commitment and I have been rather busy in the past several weeks! I think things will settle down a little as I get used to it and as we get things organized.  Somehow, even though I've been spending hours on this, there just seems to be enough time for it.

Our Primary theme for 2015 is I Know My Saviour Lives.  I am excited to turn my focus to helping the children in our ward (congregation) to know that.  I know I will learn a lot through this experience and I think it's going to be pretty awesome. :)

  3. Congrats! Are you excited, nervous, or both? I'm a RS teacher, and that's nerve-wracking enough for me!
