The scriptures are the course of study for Melchizedek Priesthood holders and should be studied at home and brought to Church meetings. The Melchizedek Priesthood personal study guide helps priesthood leaders coordinate their study of the scriptures. Leaders may follow or change the sequence of lessons in the study guide. They also may use general conference addresses as lessons or plan workshops and other activities that build faith and meet specific needs.
Instructors should approach their assignments prayerfully and teach by the Spirit (see D&C 50:13).- Melchizedek Priesthood
