The week before Primary, invite children to ask their parents how the children got their names. Ask them to report on what their names mean or why their parents chose their names. Then ask what it means to take upon ourselves the name of Christ. Conduct a discussion (see TNGC, 63–65) on taking upon oneself the name of Christ. Be prepared with examples, such as the missionaries have the name of Jesus Christ on their name tags because they are some of His representatives.
Together, have the children repeat from My Gospel Standards: “I will remember my baptismal covenants and listen to the Holy Ghost.”
Learn the second verse of “I Want to Be Baptized”:
I want to be
baptized when I have turned
To enter Christ’s kingdom through baptism’s gate.
I’ll take His name gladly, be known as His child,
And strive to be worthy, more Christlike and mild.
Invite the music leader to testify of the importance of baptism. Then bear a second witness of baptism and of Jesus Christ. Bear testimony that each of us needs to be baptized, or we cannot enter into the kingdom of God
