Recently, the 2016 mutual theme was announced.
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life”
It was our turn to host the bishopric fireside. We decided to introduce the new theme with a focus on "feasting upon the word." (Even though I believe next years focus will be on "press forward with a steadfastness in Christ").
After our brief spriritual thought, we divided the YW/YM into groups, gave them some candy, a cake, and a scripture, and they had to decorate a cake based on the scripture story.
I couldn't believe how creative the kids were! Their cakes were awesome!
Ammon protecting the sheep.
Nephi building the ship.
The judges making their final decision.
Then, they literally got to feast on the word, and eat their cakes!
