Why Have Combined Primary on 5th Sundays?

There are several reasons why you may have Primary combined on a 5th Sunday including:

  • Teacher Council Trainings: These quarterly trainings are for teachers to “counsel together about principles of Christlike teaching. They also counsel about how to improve gospel learning and teaching.” More details on these trainings are in the Church’s Handbook under Teaching the Gospel 17.4.
  • 5th Sunday combined adult 2nd hour: The bishopric may want as many members of the ward to attend a combined adult meeting during the 2nd hour.  Combining Primary into one class lets more adults attend this meeting
  • Prepare to Sing in Sacrament Meeting: Maybe you’re singing in sacrament meeting soon or preparing for the program, or just want to sing with the Primary together!
  • Just for fun!: Sometimes it’s fun to just shake things up a bit.  Why not let the whole Primary stay together on 5th Sundays for some extra singing time?
