The Holy Ghost is the third member of the Godhead
CSMP booklet 2010 pg. 12

Help the children memorize the first article of faith by dividing them into three groups.

Repeat, giving each group a turn to say each phrase. (You may want to have younger children hold up fingers for each phrase.)

Explain that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are the three members of the Godhead. Tell the children that the Holy Ghost is a spirit, without a body of flesh and bones.

Invite the children to open their scriptures and read Doctrine and Covenants 130:22 together. Ask them to listen for why the Holy Ghost does not have a body. Read Doctrine and Covenants 8:2. Have the children point to their heads when you say “mind” and to their hearts when you say “heart.”

Share examples of how the Holy Ghost might speak to your mind and your heart (see Galatians 5:22).
Consider having children share times when they have felt the influence of the Holy Ghost.

(discussing roles of the Holy Ghost): Divide the children into five groups. Give each group one of the following scripture references, and have them identify how the Holy Ghost helps us:

  1. John 14:26 (comforts and teaches);
  2. 2 Nephi 32:5 (tells us what we should do);
  3. Mosiah 5:2 (changes our hearts); Moroni 8:26 (fills us with hope and love);
  4. Doctrine and Covenants 20:27 (testifies of Christ).

Invite each group to tell the rest of the Primary what they learned.
